"At last, the puzzle pieces are coming together."
Welcome to the Externship Program, your bridge between law school and the practice of law. Externships or field placements provide you with the opportunity to integrate the theoretical knowledge learned in the classroom with the practical experience of on-the-job training. Unlike an internship, an externship allows you to receive academic credit for the education you gain outside of the classroom. The Externship Program at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School offers a variety of field placements to enhance your legal education as you gain the practical experience and confidence necessary to embark on a successful legal career.
The Externship Program’s mission is to provide students with quality field placements that develop professional and practical skills while providing the academic support needed to ensure a successful and meaningful on-the-job performance.
