Student Comments

I learned so many practical skills during my externship that I could not have gotten in the classroom alone. It’s a great feeling to be able to gain practical skills while in law school. I feel my law school experience was greatly enhanced by my externship.Chassidy Guidry, Public Interest Externship, Fall 2014

“Unfortunately law school courses do not allow students access into the realm of juvenile court. However, my externship provided me a wonderful opportunity to observe juvenile proceedings. Furthermore, this externship gave me true direction and purpose for law school – I now have the ultimate goal of advocating for legislative change in the Children’s Code.” – Gabrielle Alessi-Friedlander, Judicial Externship, Fall 2014
