Environmental Law Externship

Maryland Carey Law works with its students to place them in a variety of environmental law externships. Along with its Clinic, the Environmental Law Program Externship Program provides students ample opportunity to gain real-world experience addressing today’s environmental challenges.

Externship students can earn 4 to 11 credits (depending upon the amount of time devoted to the externship) and satisfy the experiential learning component for a Concentration in Environmental Law.
