College of Law Launches New York City Externship Program

Posted on Thursday 2/2/2017

The College of Law has introduced the New York City Externship Program. Available to qualified second-and third-year College of Law students, the New York City Externship Program will provide legal placements across the spectrum of career paths, from traditional law firms to government agencies to the judiciary.

The New York City Externship Program will be offered in the Fall, Summer and Spring. In addition to the full time legal work placements, students will participate in a bi-weekly seminar held by a Distinguished Guest Lecturer from the New York City legal community and will write a short research paper.

“The New York City Externship Program is modeled after our successful D.C. Externship Program, which has provided nearly 200 students with meaningful professional experience and invaluable connections to help launch their careers,” said Terry L. Turnipseed, Professor of Law and Director of the New York City Externship Program and D.C. Externship Program. “With the New York City Externship Program, our students have another option to put their classroom training into practice and expand their professional network in one of the most dynamic cities for lawyers.”

The New York City Externship Program will host its first placements in the Spring 2018 semester.
