Your complete legal education does not begin and end in the classroom.  With Fordham's Externship Program, you can develop the skills, experience, and confidence you need to become a complete lawyer.  

There is no better place to learn the practice of law than New York City, with externship opportunities in every industry, from concert halls to City Hall to the hallowed halls of the federal, state, and local courts.

With supervision from a mentor-attorney, guidance from a seminar professor, and support from your classmates, you can:

  • Experience real legal practice in diverse areas of the law
  • Understand the structure of different institutions and the role law plays in each
  • Consider issues of ethics, professionalism, and accountability in the legal workplace
  • Engage in public service
