Take the skills and principles you learn in the classroom and learn how they apply in practice. Emory Law's Externship Program provides work experience in different types of practice so you can determine which suits you best and develop relationships that will continue as you begin your legal career.

Externships are an educational experience in every sense. Students learn about being professionals. You discover that real attorneys and judges wrestle with and take seriously real ethical issues every day, believe in the value of service regardless of their area of practice, and are committed deeply to their clients, the rule of law, and a high standard of excellence. You will also come to appreciate that, throughout your career, you should strive to improve your skills and knowledge to become better lawyers.
