Externships & Field Placement Program

Why wait to practice law until after graduation when you can start while still in law school? Pacific McGeorge's Field Placement Program lets you earn law school credit while performing supervised legal work as an extern at nearly 100 approved government agencies, courts or non-profit entities where you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Apply legal theory and academic principles to solve legal problems and controversies
  • Develop legal research, writing, negotiation and interviewing skills
  • Experience how ethical standards inform the practice of law
  • Better understand the lawyer's role in our legal system
  • Explore career interests in a variety of legal settings and build a professional network
