Ad Hoc Externship Opportunities

Penn Law students may pursue creating their own Ad Hoc Externship at a government or non-profit organization.

Occasionally, we are contacted by potential Ad Hoc Externship placement offices who are seeking one or more externs. As these opportunities are received, they will be posted here for any interested students to review and apply directly to the offices.  These are listed as one of many resources for students to use when thinking about possible placements.  Please note that these postings are not a guarantee that a position is currently available or that your Ad Hoc Externship proposal will be approved as every application and placement is evaluated individually. Students who are conducting searches for government externships are also encouraged to review this page .  

Students are strongly encouraged to check this page often as it is updated regularly. In addition, students should also conduct searches for other opportunities as this list is not exhaustive.

Please carefully review the requirements and deadlines for submitting Ad Hoc Externship proposals.
