CRN: 43132 Instructor: Sara K. Sommarstrom, Walter W. Burk This externship offers students an opportunity to learn about public interest practice while engaging in significant hands-on legal work in a field placement at a public interest organization or government agency. Students will be challenged to discuss complex issues of ethics, access to justice, and professional growth through personal and group reflection exercises. Externship logs will serve both as a record of tasks accomplished and a reflection tool for the group project. The externship requires 150 hours of work from the student, between the field-placement and class work components. Agencies will provide the extern with an appropriate workload designed to challenge the student while serving the mission of the organization. Enrollment in the externship is by application only. Prerequisites include: (1) The completion of three semesters of law school; (2) Good academic standing; (3) Enrollment at UST School of Law during the semester immediately preceding the one in which the student expects to enroll in the Public Interest Externship; and (4) Other prerequisites as required by the agency.
