Legal Externships

College of Law


A legal externship is a great way to gain practical legal experience while in law school and earn course credit at the same time. The University of Wyoming College of Law has a robust externship program with many opportunities available. Ashli Tomisich, Director of Career Services, serves as the Externship Supervisor for the program. Please contact her or Tim Crawford with any questions you might have. Many students have said this is one of the best experiences they have in law school. The opportunity to apply your legal knowledge to 'real-world' practice is invaluable to your legal education!

Externship Process:

  • Standard Practice: Student should complete the online form found on the student page below for the respective semester they are applying, indicating
    • 1) their 3 preferred placements (the school will place the student in order of preference and employer selection after the deadline);
    • 2) the student has placed themselves (see next bullet), or
    • 3) the student is submitting a new employer outside of the approved placement list.
  • Independent Placement: A student may contact an employer directly seeking information about the externship or to ask if the employer will accept them earlier than the school's set deadline.  Employers may choose to 
    • 1) not select the student, or any extern,
    • 2) accept the extern, or
    • 3) indicate they will consider all applications after the school's deadline.
  • New Placement: If a student secures a position with an organization not on the school’s pre-approved externship list, they may have the supervisor complete the ‘Field Supervisor Application Form’ found through the employer page below for consideration of credit.
