Student Legal Services

The Student Legal Services Externship enables you to earn academic credit for one semester of work at Student Legal Services (SLS), a nonprofit law office that provides legal services to Indiana University students and student groups. You'll typically earn credit during your first semester of work at SLS; after that, if you choose to continue working there, you'll be paid hourly. The course is open to second- and third-year students.

As an SLS extern, you'll develop fundamental skills in:

  • Client interviewing
  • Counseling
  • Problem solving
  • Negotiating
  • Document drafting
