Host Site Requirements

Approved Externship Host Sites

Approved externship host sites may include government agencies, judicial chambers, legal aid offices, legislative bodies, public defender offices, public interest organizations, small firms (10 attorneys or fewer) and corporate counsel offices. To become an approved externship host site, or to renew if more than 2 years have passed without an extern from UW School of Law, please contact the Externship Program Director.

Externship Host Sites must provide the extern with an appropriate work station, adequate training and opportunities to engage in substantial lawyering activities.
