Externships 9: Coming of Age















Conference Dates: Friday March 9, 2018 to Sunday March 11, 2018

It is our pleasure to invite you to Externships 9, to be held at the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens, Georgia, from March 9-11, 2018. This year’s theme, "Coming of Age," marks the 20th anniversary of the first Externships Conference in March 1997 at the Catholic University Washington College of Law. Since that conference, the externship community has evolved and externship pedagogy has matured. Join us as we celebrate and take stock of our evolution by assessing the past, present, and future of externship teaching. Externships 9 will bring our community together to network, assess issues relevant to field placements and legal education, welcome new members of our community, and have fun.
