Externships at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University are designed to help students acquire practical legal skills under the supervision and guidance of experienced lawyers and full-time faculty. Nearly as important as the abilities they develop are the connections students make while working with practicing attorneys.
Externships allow you to:
Gain firsthand, substantive legal experience that offer a realistic view of the work attorneys do.
Focus your analytic attention on the role that lawyers play in our society.
Apply critical judgment for various legal institutions with which you are directly involved.
