An externship gives law students the opportunity to gain experience in a practical setting during the academic semester. Indiana Law has several externships that also offer academic credit: the Indiana Legal Services Externship, the Student Legal Services Externship, and the Criminal Law Externship. You can enroll in externship programs when you enroll for your regular courses.

The Washington Public Interest Program is a special externship that allows select third-year students to spend a semester in Washington, D.C., as public interest interns with nonprofit organizations or federal agencies. This program creates a valuable bridge in the transition from law student to practicing lawyer.
