Host Institutions

Thank you for your interest in serving as a Host Institution for one or more LL.M. externs through our LL.M. Externship Program.  We are pleased to give LL.M. students the opportunity to engage in for-credit externships with a wide variety of host organizations, including non-profit organizations, corporate legal and compliance departments, government agencies, and law firms.  If you wish to post an announcement seeking LL.M. externs for your office, please email with the details of the externship position, and simultaneously submit the Site Approval Application

Please note that if your organization has been previously approved as a Host Institution for the LL.M. Externship Program and has hosted an LL.M. extern in the past three years, you need not resubmit the Site Approval Application. If you are unsure whether you need to submit a new Site Approval Application, please contact

Our Guidelines for Host Institutions and Placement Supervisors provides a comprehensive overview of the Host Institution’s responsibilities with respect to our LL.M. externs.  We encourage you to review this document thoroughly to get a sense of what is expected and required of both our Host Institutions and the externs themselves.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
