Students can expand their practical training through an extensive offering of externships. The Judicial Extern Program places students with federal, state, appellate, bankruptcy, Social Security Administration and tribal judges. Through the Law Office Extern Program, students work side-by-side with attorneys, learning the day-in and day-out practice of law. They also complete externships at governmental agencies. Some of those opportunities might include the Albuquerque City Attorney's Office, the UNM Patent Office, the U.S. Forest Service, the State Engineer's Office and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
