March conference on law school externships to be held at U. Georgia School of Law

The conference at U. Georgia School of Law in Athens on March 9 - 11, 2018 will mark the 20th Anniversary of the very first  such conference in 1997 to examine and discuss the pedagogy of law school externships. Mark your calendars now and here the details at present (more to follow):

The conference includes plenary sessions on the past, present, and future of externship teaching; on advocating for externships within the legal academy; and on the justice mission of externships. It offers 35 concurrent sessions with over 95 presenters, as a well as a Town Hall on current issues in externship education. Registration also includes two pre-conference sessions, one for new externship teachers, the other on scholarship for externship teachers. A full program appears on the conference website.


Join us as we celebrate and take stock of the past, present, and future of externship teaching. Externships 9 will bring our community together to network, assess issues relevant to field placements and legal education, welcome new members of our community, and have fun.
