JD Externships

You’re already well acquainted with the classroom, now get familiar with the practice of law. From concert halls to City Hall to the hallowed halls of federal, state, and local courts, Fordham’s Externship program provides numerous opportunities across New York City to develop the skills, experience, and confidence you need to become a complete lawyer.

You’ll receive supervision from a mentor-attorney, guidance from a seminar professor, and support from your classmates as you experience legal practice in action across diverse areas of the law. You’ll also gain a better understanding of how the law impacts institutional structures, consider issues of ethics, professionalism, and accountability in the legal workplace, and have the opportunity to do meaningful public service.

Drop the law books and engage your legal education with an externship.
