Certificate(s): High Tech Law
Civil Practice, High Tech, and Social Justice Externship II allows students who have already participated in the Civil Practice, High Tech, and Social Justice Externship I to do a second civil externship. The additional field placement would need to present a new educational experience that provide 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). Certificate 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), Civil Practice, High Tech, and Social Justice Externship I (590). If High Tech in nature, this course will count towards the High Tech Law certificate Certificate
Credit/No Credit. Prerequisite: Civil Procedure (114) and Civil Practice Externship I (590). Students must apply and have placement pre-approved. Applications available on-line at Externship page. Students must also register for the Externship Workshop (706). Permission numbers for both classes will be sent via email by the Externship Program upon approval.
