Accordingly, the College will normally recognize a maximum of 12 credit hours for law school externship work in partial fulfillment of the J.D. degree under the guidelines set forth in the STATEMENT OF STUDENT POLICIES. All available externship opportunities are listed in an “Externship Manual” distributed to students in September (for spring) and December (for summer and fall.)
