Host Institutions

Thank you for your interest in serving as a Host Institution for one or more LLM and/or MSL externs through our Graduate Externship Program.  We are pleased to give graduate 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 LLM and/or MSL externs for your office, please email llm@law.fordham.edu 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 Graduate Externship Program and has hosted a graduate 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 llm@law.fordham.edu.

Our Guidelines for Host Institutions and Placement Supervisors provides a comprehensive overview of the Host Institution’s responsibilities with respect to our LLM and MSL 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 llm@law.fordham.edu.
