Learning Objectives for Labor Law Externship:
To address a student’s desire to obtain supervised direct legal experience in the field of labor and/or employment law and to obtain feedback on his or her performance.
To help each student (i) develop the habits of a reflective practitioner who understands how to learn from experience; (ii) identify, explore and address issues of legal ethics and professional responsibility in the labor/employment law context; and (iii) build professional networks within the labor and employment law bar.
To integrate classroom and real-life experiences, allowing students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to a real-world setting and to better understand the day-to-day work of a lawyer who practices in the field of labor and employment law.
