Cornell Law School: Externships
Many students are interested in externships that provide the opportunity to work in a law setting outside the law school. The externship courses, provided through the Legal Aid Clinic, place students in a variety of work places that meet their particular educational goals. Students can enroll in local, part-time externships, or immerse themselves in a practice setting by enrolling in a semester long, full time externship in various cities in the US or, occasionally, abroad.
