All DC Externship students are required to enroll in and attend the Washington, DC, Externship Workshop, where students reflect on their externship experiences and actively participate in group discussion on topics including legal, ethical, and managerial issues that arise in the workplace, as well as effective lawyering skills. Students are also required to complete a periodic journal in connection with the Workshop. Students must complete the journal and Workshop requirements in order to receive academic credit for their externships.
The DC Externship Workshop meets alternating Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00 pm, with dinner provided. Hours spent in the Workshop count towards externship hours (52.5 hours per unit) for academic credit.
