Curriculum

Student Legal Services Externship

B679 is taught by Farnsworth, C. Reichard

Law students work at Student Legal Services (SLS), a nonprofit law office offering advice and representation to IU Bloomington students (https://www.indiana.edu/~sls/). Funded by student fees, SLS helps students with many legal issues, including landlord-tenant relations and consumer complaints. Second- and third-year law students work under the close supervision of four staff attorneys. Students enroll for credit for one semester (typically their first), then move to paying positions in subsequent semesters.

Any student interested in enrolling in B679 must first apply to and be accepted by SLS as an intern. To receive academic credit for clinic work, students must work a minimum of ten hours per week in the clinic and submit reflective essays approximately every two weeks. Prior approval by Prof. Farnsworth is necessary to enroll in the course.
