To prepare students for the new reality of practicing law in a global legal environment, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law has established the Global Legal Practice Externship Program, which allows students to work over the summer in international or domestic unpaid positions for academic credit. The program gives students two options to participate in, with the same academic requirements for both.
The two options for student participation allow you to select the method that works best for you — being placed internationally or finding your own placement in the U.S. or abroad. The program awards students 3 academic credits and requires participants to agree to the following conditions:
There are two placement options, each with different application procedures. With Placement Option I, we place you with an internship via our partnership with Global Experiences, Inc. With Placement Option II, Hofstra Law awards credit for externships you find on your own. Both options are supported by financial aid.
