Washington College of Law Externship Program

American University Washington College of Law
The American University Washington College of Law offers externship programs for students currently pursuing a degree in law at the university. Externships allow students to pursue career options and areas where they might want to practice law.

Externships may be with federal/state/local government agencies or courts. They may also be with non-profit organizations or law firms. All externships receive mentoring by an experienced attorney and are given work projects that reflect real-life experience practicing law.

Students will have opportunities to work for firms and agencies in the U.S. and internationally. Approximately 400 students each year are hired for externship positions. Some of the companies have included AARP, American Bar Association, ACLU, Executive Office of the President, EPA, Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice, and various district and appeals courts in Maryland, Virginia and D.C.

All externship positions require students to work on site. Externships are unpaid and require students to enroll in a 3-credit externship seminar which allows them to receive credit and document their externship experience and learning. Students must have completed one year of law school before applying.
