Criminal Justice Externship II

Catalog No.: 561

Course Description:

New course description starting this Fall. Criminal Justice Externship II allows students who have already participated in the Criminal Justice Externship I to do a second externship. The additional field placement would need to present a new educational experience that provides an opportunity to learn new or expand current skills. The expectation is that students will work with a new externship sponsor. Students wishing to work for a current or previous sponsor will have the burden via written proposal of overcoming the presumption that the sponsor can not provide an educational experience that is significantly different in complexity, responsibility or task to merit again working with the same sponsor. If a student can overcome the presumption and receives approval, a memorandum of understanding signed by both the student and the supervising attorney would need to be produced prior to the start of the externship. In addition to students’ field-work, students must register for the appropriate on-line Externship Workshop (706). Course credit will be awarded only on satisfactory completion of both the fieldwork and the online course. Students must complete both components simultaneously. Graded Credit/No Credit. Prerequisite: Civil Procedure (114), Criminal Justice Externship I (591).
