This externship is designed to address a vastly underserved population: low income persons and families with urgent family law issues. Students will work with non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private attorneys specializing in Family Law, to handle all aspects of Family Law cases at all stages, from client interview to representation at court hearings, assisting in trials, and writing legal briefs. Students are responsible for obtaining their own placement. For help in finding a placement, please contact Law Career Services, the Externship Director, or the professor well in advance of the start of classes. Eligible students may become certified to argue cases in court. This course counts toward completion of the Experiential Learning Requirement. Corequisites: Students should have taken either Community Property, Family Law, or Family Law Practice, or be taking one of these courses contemporaneously with this externship. This course is graded on a Credit/No Credit basis.
