Summer Experiences

Trying to decide how to spend your summer? Paid legal employment in the field of your choice is always a great option. But we know that paid summer positions jobs are not always available, especially for rising 2Ls. So what’s a student to do? This category lists options you shouldn’t overlook, including externships that provide a placement in an employment setting with exposure to practice in this area, fellowships or scholarships that students can apply for that support unpaid internships or externships in this field, and other relevant opportunities. Externships are for-credit experiential learning opportunities, where the student is supervised both by a lawyer at the placement and a faculty member, with educational requirements the student must meet. Financial aid is generally available for students who enroll in externships on the same terms as for other coursework.

Externships (6): City of Gainesville, Gainesville City Attorney’s Office, Florida Building Commission

Other Information

Courses on topics including planning and construction law may be available in the College of Design Construction and Planning that support this practice area. Students should consult the course catalog for the College and then discuss the course with a law school advisor to determine whether it makes sense to take the course. Students may take up to 6 credit hours outside of the law school that count toward the law school degree.
