Public Interest Externship Program

For many lawyers, the public sector — nonprofit organizations, government agencies, the judiciary — is a rewarding practice setting. Our public interest externship program gives you the opportunity to explore this field while earning academic credit. It's a popular program: about 30% of Indiana Law's students participate each summer.

By working during the summer in your choice of public-sector settings, you can earn up to four credits while getting hands-on experience under the supervision of a practicing attorney and a faculty member. Plus you'll lighten your course load during your 2L year, which frees up time to work on law journal, moot court, and career planning.
