An externship is an experiential learning course, in which students engage in substantial lawyering activities under the supervision of a licensed judge or attorney at a variety of approved host sites with faculty-guided reflection about the experience.

Externship Program requirements follow ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools.

A public service externship of two credits or more will fulfill the public service graduation requirement for students in the Juris Doctor program.

UW Law also offers students a wide range of experiential learning opportunities through the Clinical Law Program.
