These law-related placements outside of the law school are opportunities for law students to do legal work for an agency or court and earn academic credit. Students are closely mentored by an on-site supervising attorney or judge and have an opportunity for reflection and discussion with a faculty supervisor in a seminar format.

The following externships are available in Alaska:

  • Alaska Legal Services Corporation
  • US Army Corps of Engineers
  • Alaska Public Defenders
  • Office of Administrative Hearings
  • Native American Rights Fund
  • Alaska Immigration Justice Project
  • Municipality of Anchorage

To see full descriptions of the externships and application requirements, please visit the Externship Program homepage.

Students should note that externship positions have separate deadlines unrelated to the registration process with Seattle University.
