Gonzaga Law Externship Program
Externships are unpaid work-for-experience opportunities that allow law students to not only gain insight to the workings of the legal system but receive college credit at the same time. Students can earn up to 15 credits for their externship experience. The guideline is one credit hour for every 60 hours of work.
Students may choose a wide variety of positions across the state and other locations, working with judges and attorneys. Some of the positions are with the Washington State Attorney General's Office, Spokane County Prosecutor's or Public Defender's Offices, Spokane County Superior Court, U.S. District Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, just to name a few.
The externship program is designed to place students in programs that serve those in need. Positions can be within government or non-profit organizations. Students will work in a legal capacity, gaining real-life experience in the legal system as well as a clearer perspective on a career focus in law.
