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.

Students considering a field placement are encouraged to meet with the Field Placement Program Director, June Tai, to discuss their interests and plans. To make an appointment, send a meeting request to june-tai@uiowa.edu for any time showing as available on her outlook calendar or view availability at https://calendly.com/jttai

Questions regarding posting and bidding on law school arranged field placements, submitting applications forms for field placements, and other logistical aspects of the program may additionally be directed to Amy Huston, Coordinator of Employment Engagement, (amy-huston@uiowa.edu) in the Career Services Office.
