Externships: Our Students at Work

Widener Law Commonwealth offers professionally rich externship opportunities. Externs immerse themselves in the day-to-day working lives of practicing attorneys and judges, hone research and writing skills, earn academic credit, and build a network for future employment.

Through our clinical and judicial externships program, placements are offered with State and county agencies, the Commonwealth and Supreme courts of Pennsylvania, senators and representatives of the State legislative body, and others. Second- and third-year externs work with judges, State and local prosecutors, public defenders, and legal service and government agencies.

Externship forms are available on the Externships TWEN page.
