“John Marshall’s externship program offers quality field placements that develop professional and practical skills while ensuring  successful and meaningful on-the-job performance.” Paul Nam, Graduate (’12)

Experiential Learning

"At last, the puzzle pieces are coming together."

 

Welcome to the Experiential Learning 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 Experiential Learning 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.

Mission

The mission of the Experiential Learning Program is to provide opportunities for students to develop their practical legal skills in real-world legal settings while providing them with the academic support and guidance needed to ensure a successful and meaningful on-the-job performance and a deeper insight into what it means to be a lawyer.
