Externships can be a useful tool for students seeking ways to learn more about international and comparative law.

Credit-bearing externships are experiential opportunities that are intended to offer students in-depth study in substantive areas, supplement the experiential study provided in clinical courses, and give students the opportunity to explore subjects or activities not currently offered experientially in the curriculum. 

Leveraging Penn Carey Law’s proximity to New York and Washington, D.C., students have observed and participated meaningfully in lawyering at government agencies and non-profits.
