Legal Externship Program

The Legal Externship Program gives second- and third-year students the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a variety of legal settings in which they're exposed to the realities of law practice under the supervision of well-respected practitioners.

Over the years, hundreds of students have expanded their experience through field-placements in the following areas: civil and criminal litigation, civil rights, health care, taxation, securities law, environmental law, banking, domestic violence, children's law and the judiciary.

Placements include:

  • Boston University General Counsel's Office
  • WGBH
  • Draper Laboratories
  • State Street Bank
  • Political Asylum/Immigration Representation Project (PAIR)

Students participating in the Legal Externship Program are eligible for the Concentration in Litigation and Dispute Resolution.
