After completing two semesters of law school, Iowa law students may participate in externships for credit.  These externships may be:

  • part-time during the regular school year;
  • full-time, semester-away from the law school; or
  • summer legal placements. 

There are two ways students may apply for an externship:

  • Participate in the Field Placement Program's placement process for pre-approved placements; or
  • Apply for externships separately and receive approval for academic credit from the Field Placement Director.
