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 graduation requirement of 60 hours of public service for students in the Juris Doctor program.

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