The Externship on the Federal Government in Washington, D.C.
This full-semester offering for selected Columbia Law School third-year JD candidates is designed to provide a valuable hands-on complement to the Law School’s more conventional teaching offerings in public law, affording an opportunity to integrate aspects of students’ public law education in an applied setting. Admission is by application only. Up to fifteen students will be selected. Rachel Pauley, Director of Government Programs, will oversee externship placements, including the application process and term-time counseling.
An information session for the Spring 2017 term will be held on September 14 from 12:10-1:10 p.m. in JG 105. Attendance is very highly encouraged for interested applicants.
Externs apply to participating federal government law offices on a guided basis following admission to the externship program.
The deadline for applications for the Spring 2017 term is September 26 at 3:00pm.
