A group of students from the Clinical Externship Program

The Clinical Externship Program is an essential component of the curriculum at California Western School of Law. The Program builds upon the strong practice foundation students receive in the second year STEPPS Program. The 13-week program gives third year students the opportunity to earn academic credit for legal work in not-for-profit agencies, private law offices, courts, corporations or government agencies. In these settings, students participate in legal work and acquire useful insights and experiences toward building their careers. The program develops and promotes the confidence, problem solving skills, and professionalism that lead to becoming practice ready attorneys.
