Course Number: LAW 993FP
Course Credits: 2
In a Guided Externship, the student works for an attorney in a law office approved by the Executive Director of John Jay Legal Services and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Guidelines for this program are as follows: 1. Generally, guided externships are intended for potential field placements that are not already covered by an existing externship program. 2. Preapproved field placement sites are limited to those where a field supervisor already has agreed to comply with the Law School’s standards and expectations for field placements. Alternatively, a student may locate a new field placement, subject to approval by the Executive Director of John Jay Legal Services. For any new field placement, the field supervisor must agree to comply with the Law School’s standards and expectations for field placements. 3. Students may ask any member of the full-time faculty to act as their faculty supervisor. The Executive Director of John Jay Legal Services and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will assist in identifying an appropriate faculty supervisor, if necessary. 4. No more than two credits per guided externship. Four hours per week per credit. The total required over the semester is 104 hours (8 hours/week x13 weeks = 104). 5. A completed Guided Externship Request must be submitted by the student to applicationsJJLS@law.pace.edu prior to the beginning of the semester. Permission of the Executive Director of John Jay Legal Services and the Academic Dean, after application, required.
