Clinical Studies & Intensive Externships

An experiential education at AJMLS is more than simply learning from experience. Students are expected to integrate theory and reflect upon the impact of their experiences on their professional development.  Externships, internships for credit at approved field placements, offer direct experiences under the supervisions of attorneys or judges.  Clinics offer direct experience under the supervision of both a professor and a supervising attorney.

AJMLS Fulton County Family Law Externship Clinic

The Fulton County Family Law Externship Clinic is available to students who have completed a family law course and are eligible for the 3rd Year Practice Act. This is a two-semester clinic for four credits each semester. The clinic operates out of the Fulton County Superior Court where students assist litigants with simple family law matters, participate in 30-day conferences, and make limited appearances on behalf of pre-screened clients. Students are supervised by Professor Bernadette Olmos. Applications are taken in the spring for the following school year.

Experiential Tax Law Externship

The Tax Law Externship  offers students who have completed the Federal Income Taxation course an opportunity for hands-on tax law experience in a small firm setting, while under the guidance of an AJMLS tax law professor.
