Study Abroad

Uganda Clerkship

In 2007, the Office of Diversity Initiatives partnered with the Ugandan Supreme Court to establish an externship program.  Eight students participated in the program that year, and in 2009, seven students from the Charleston School of Law travelled to Uganda to serve as externs for the Ugandan Justices.

Throughout the externship, students were able to learn about the Ugandan Judicial system and experience Ugandan culture.  Additionally, students researched legal issues and drafted opinions for the Justices.
