Criminal Law and Justice


While opportunities exist to get paid work doing criminal law, especially in the summer months and in the private sector, externships for law school credit also exist. 

The flexibility of our externship program allows students to work in a variety of areas of law as well as for different amounts of credit, in places all over the country, and at different times of year. Recent criminal law externs have worked for public defenders and district attorney offices, prosecuting attorney offices, state superior courts, with the ACLU, on capital appeals projects and wrongful convictions, and more.
