VLS offers externships for JD, master's, LLM and joint-degree students.
Students can enroll in either full- or part-time programs that place them in a variety of legal and judicial settings.
In recent years, our students have received placements in private firms; corporate legal departments; criminal law offices; city and state governments; in international law, immigration law, and energy law; in courts of appeals, U.S. District Courts, and state Supreme Courts; in local, state, and federal agencies; and in nonprofits of all sizes.
Our placement process is student-driven and geographically unrestricted.
The externships office consistently explores new and exciting opportunities for students in interesting places, with mentors who use the power of the law to make a difference.
