Following approval of a student's application, the Civil Standard Externship Program (SEP) allows second and third year students to obtain academic credit for externing in select non-profit public interest, public policy, and government agencies in the Bay Area for one quarter. The Civil SEP allows students to (a) gain experience in a field where a clinical course is not offered, or (b) pursue advanced work in an area of prior clinical practice. Placements can be either full time (40 hours per week) or part time, but no fewer than 16 hours per week. Because of other Law School requirements, students in their final quarter are limited to part-time externships of no more than 16 hours per week. For a complete description of the Civil SEP, students should read the Externship Handbook, which is available from the Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law or online at: http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/centers/pip/externship/. Students wishing to enroll in an externship must meet various requirements that are set out in the Handbook. Interested students should speak to Betsy de la Vega, Lecturer in Law and Director of Externship and Pro Bono Programs at email@example.com. Students participating in the Civil SEP must also enroll in the Externship Companion Seminar during the 2014 spring term. In some cases, where other seminars would be more appropriate companion courses for a student's placement, the student can request to substitute the seminar for the standard course in the application process. Grading Elements used: Full participation and attendance, satisfactory evaluation by field placement supervisor, weekly reflection papers of three to five pages, and a final reflection paper of no less than 15 pages.
