McGeorge School of Law


Why wait to learn how to practice law until after graduation when you can start while still in law school? McGeorge's Externships let you earn law school credit while performing supervised legal work as an extern at government agencies, courts or non-profit entities, and limited for-profit entities where you will have the opportunity:

  • Apply legal theory and academic principles to solve legal problems and controversies
  • Develop legal research, writing, negotiation and interviewing skills
  • Experience how ethical standards inform the practice of law
  • Better understand the lawyer's role in our legal system
  • Explore career interests in a variety of legal settings and build a professional network
