Externship Program

The externship program is a great experiential learning opportunity for Wayne Law students to work as a law clerk in congressional oversight committees in Washington, D.C., while earning credits towards their law degree. 

"Lawyering in the Nation’s Capital” externship program

In collaboration with the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights and the Wayne Law Experiential Learning program, we offer an externship program entitled, “Lawyering in the Nation’s Capital.” The program allows Wayne Law students to spend an externship semester in Washington, D.C., working on congressional oversight committees or civil rights NGOs while earning credits toward their law degrees.
