The Colorado Law externship program is offered year-round (Fall, Spring and Summer semesters). Students may only extern at government or non-profit organizations and agencies. Students may work in all three branches of the government, including state and federal judicial chambers, executive agencies, and congressional offices. Students may also extern with nonprofit organizations. Externship sponsors are not limited to agencies and organizations that have sponsored externs in the past. Sponsoring organizations must have an identified attorney supervisor in order to receive externship approval.
