Valparaiso University Law School puts a great deal of focus on instilling a deep understanding of legal theory and translating it into practical, real-world lawyering. The Externship Program, started in 1985 with only two positions, has since grown to more than 190 approved offerings in over 175 discrete offices in which students can work as externs.
Students interested in pursuing an externship should contact Derrick Howard, Director of Externship Programs, at Derrick.Howard@valpo.edu or by phone at 219-465-7864.
