Ethics Externships:

Students have the option of receiving credit through externships with federal and state agencies, bar associations and non-profits that have ethical oversight roles. Assignments may include: preparing drafts of legal ethics opinions (for the Maryland Bar Legal Ethics Committee); preparing guidelines on permissible forms of client solicitation (for Civil Justice); and participating in discussions with federal prosecutors on anticipated ethics problems (for the U.S. Department of Justice Professional Responsibility Advisory Office). These assignments give students the opportunities to see how ethics issues arise and are resolved in real settings and to help provide guidelines to interpret ethics policies.
