Externships 

Touro Law Center’s Externship Program provides our students with the opportunity to work in diverse areas of legal practice, develop essential lawyering skills, gain knowledge about particular fields of law, practice in specialized courts, and learn about how lawyers and law firms, government organizations and the courts operate.
 
Every Touro Law student is guaranteed an externship experience for academic credit.
 
Touro Law students may be placed in different types of settings, usually classified as civil, judicial (federal and state) or criminal (prosecution and defense). 
 
The placements include:

Students may elect to take a second externship (the “Advanced Externship”) after they have successfully completed their first externship. The second externship will carry two (2) credits and consist of a minimum of 140 hours of field placement. Students will be asked to communicate periodically with the externship director.
