Administrative Coordinator, Clinics and Externships
William Mitchell offers students a variety of externships that provide valuable hands-on learning experiences. Externships have an hour commitment based on credit enrollment and require prerequisite courses. Each student registered for an externship has a faculty supervisor and field placement supervisor.
Each course offers a classroom portion focused on analytical topics. These externships have regularly scheduled classes and are under the direction of the assigned professor.
Independent Externships and Independent Judicial Externships are for-credit courses, in which the student takes responsibility for much of his or her own learning by working in field-placement sites under the guidance of a field supervisor and faculty supervisor.
Students can take up to a total of four (4) independent externship credits AND a total of four (4) independent judicial externships during their law school career.
Credits from classroom-based externships, e.g., Bankruptcy Externship Course, Federal Judicial Externship Course, do not count against the independent externship credits.
