Are you interested in learning more about the inner workings of the judicial system, connecting with judges and their clerks, and strengthening your research, writing and analytical skills? If you answered yes to any of these, a judicial externship might be a great fit. Applications are open now, and are due no later than Sunday, March 18.

The judges accepting applications are listed on the C-M Law website (and will be updated regularly) and more information about the externship application process is available in the Externship Program Handbook.
