Externships

The School of Law’s externship program offers students the opportunity to learn, in supervised governmental and not-for-profit organization settings, about significant aspects of law and its practice.  Externships fall into the following broad categories:

  • Business Law
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (through the Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland, C-DRUM)
  • Center for Health and Homeland Security
  • Environmental Law
  • Criminal Law Prosecution
  • Judicial (Asper Fellowship)
  • Health Law
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • International Law (including South Africa)
  • Maryland Legislative
  • Public Interest

Each externship has a program administrator.  Many students identify their own field placements and then approach the appropriate program administrator to supervise the opportunity.  In other cases, students approach the program administrator first for assistance in identifying a field placement. Externships carry from 3 to 11 credits; along with the field placement, every student must enroll in a 1- or 2-credit workshop corresponding to the externship category.

For additional information about externships, contact Assistant Dean Crystal Edwards, cedwards@law.umaryland.edu.
