The Center’s externships are designed to enable students to gain firsthand experience in a transactional real estate practice or in a sustainability practice under the supervision of an experienced attorney. The Center places students with law firms, law departments, not-for-profits, and government agencies.

For these externships, students will undertake 120 hours of supervised on-site work over a period of 6–8 weeks, participate in a classroom component provided by the Center for Real Estate Law, keep a journal of their experiences, and complete a short reflections paper.
