Placement Option II

Placement Option II

Find Your Own Global Externship Field Placement

The Maurice A. Deane School of Law supports students who identify an appropriate legal field placement in another country. Option II allows students to find their own internationally focused position and gives them the flexibility of arranging their logistics.

This option does not provide placement support, housing or social activities, but does allow students to receive 3 academic credits for their work.

Please review the section on “Financial Aid for the Global Legal Practice Externship Program” to learn more about the budget allowable for students selecting Option II.

To apply for Option II, students must seek approval of the field placement by submitting a Request for Field Placement Approval form (PDF) to Franca Sachs, the assistant dean for experiential programs.

Upon submitting the application and being accepted into the Externship Program, students will be billed for the summer externship program tuition and will be enrolled in the 3-credit Global Externship Program for the summer session. No deposit is required for Option II.
