SUMMER 2022 SPECIAL NOTE:  Both information and circumstances may change. ExPro will revisit this policy at that time. However, until then the following applies for summer 2022 externship registration:  in line with policy, all externship hours must be conducted in-person. An exception is made for those placements where staff has not yet returned to full in-office staffing. Students may not “opt-in” to work remotely nor count remote hours for on-line only placements.

Credit/No Credit. Prerequisite: Criminal Law (106). Students must apply and have placement pre-approved. Applications available online at Externship page. Students must also register for and successfully complete the Externship Workshop (706). Permission numbers for both classes will be sent via email by the Externship Program upon approval.
