Externships offer Georgetown law students the opportunity to earn credit for unpaid work in the public sector. Facilitated by our unique location in the heart of Washington, most of our students choose to work for the federal government, though a substantial number choose to work on the Hill, in judicial chambers, or in local or national non-profit agencies.
In addition to their field work, students participates in elective seminar classes and give a final presentation about their experiences. Students receive either 2 or 3 credits for 110 or 165 hours worked, respectively, over 11 weeks in the academic year or 6 weeks in the summer. Externships are graded on a pass/fail basis, and the credits are counted toward the seven-credit limit on pass/fail courses.
