The Charleston School of Law Externship Program provides its students with a unique, real-world experience outside of the classroom. Through the Externship Program, students gain practical experience in a variety of legal professions, while earning academic credit.
The externship experience (a) assists students in exploring a particular area of interest of their choice at a field-placement site, (b) exposes students to the operation of the legal system, (c) enhances students’ practical skills, such as, communication, research and writing, and (d) enhances students’ personal skills such as poise and confidence.
Additionally, externships provide students with the opportunity to meet and work with members of the legal bar and their staff, which relationships may prove invaluable as the students pursue employment.
