Miami Law Externships


Home   >  Academics   >  Externships

The University of Miami School of Law has two externship options for skill building and practical, hands-on opportunities outside of the scope of the regular law school classroom.

Career Development Office Externship Program

Our expanded CDO Externship Program allows students to obtain academic credit while working in a real world legal setting. The Externship Program offers national and international externships with corporations, government agencies, public interest organizations and the judiciary. The program is designed to enhance the educational experience of students by giving them an opportunity to do advanced legal work that generally is not available through the law school's curriculum.

Litigation Skills Externship Program

In addition, the unique Litigation Skills Externship Program provides students with the opportunity to apply the trial and pre-trial skills learned during the Lit Skills I course in a live client setting. In these externship placements, students may represent clients in criminal and civil matters and argue cases in Circuit, County and Federal courts under the supervision of practicing attorneys.
