Public Interest Externship Program

Through our Public Interest Clinical Externship Program, students earn academic credit while working  in a variety of non-profit or government settings. Students are eligible to appear in court as student attorneys in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and gain valuable hands-on experience representing low-income clients through civil legal services programs or public defender offices, advocating on behalf of the government in a variety of local or state agencies, or learning about policy development by working in local non-profit organizations. Students participate in a two-hour weekly seminar focused on reflective lawyering, professionalism, social justice, and ethics.
