Legal Externships

 

Supervisor Application

There is an application for a potential supervisor to fill out if you would like to have an extern in your office. All externships must be in a judicial, governmental or non-profit organization. If you would like to have an extern in your office, please fill out the Field Supervisor Application form and return it to Tim Crawford at tcrawfo4@uwyo.edu for review. Upon receipt, our office will notify the supervisor and student of the status of their application and th necessary next steps. 

Rule 9 - Practicing under your Supervisor

The Wyoming State Bar provides a way for students to get "real-world" experience prior to graduation. Rule 9 states that a student may practice in court as a normal attorney under the direct supervision of their supervising attorney. This gives an extern the incredible opportunity to get exposure to the court system, practice making an argument to the court, and allows the supervisor to give meaningful feedback and mentorship early in a young lawyer's career. It is encouraged that field supervisors participate and provide these opportunities to their externs, when appropriate. 

Supervisor Documents & Training

The Externship Program Director is always happy to answer any questions a supervisor or their staff may have throughout the duration of the externship placement, or outside of a placement. The College also provides a 1 credit CLE training for all field supervisors. You may access a copy of that CLE for self-study credit by clicking the link . Other policies, guidelines and evaluation documents are listed below.
