SUMMER SEMINAR REGISTRATION The summer externship seminar schedule will be posted within the next week. Please watch the course listings page for the LAW 769 numbers. Course descriptions will be posted on the Externship Program bulletin board.
You register for a seminar as you would for any other course. Then, you will go to our website and submit your Field Placement Request for Approval www.wcl.american.edu/externship. This submission will generate the forms you will need to have signed to proceed and register for field credits. The Request for Approval site will only be active once the seminar registration process has begun.
THE NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL LONG-DISTANCE PROGRAM There will be two, separate sections of the Long-Distance seminar and both will meet on May 17-19; the August dates will be the week of August 16 (M-W or T-TH). Professors Gleason and Freeman will determine the class times closer to the date; last year the seminars ran almost all day with a break for lunch. Attendance at all 6 seminar days is mandatory. The course packets from last summer are available in the office for review. Students can earn 3 graded credits for the seminar component, and 1, 2 or 3 P/F credits for their fieldwork, depending on how many hours a week you work. Last summer, WCL students externed in New York, California, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Florida, Massachusetts, Rome, Italy and Sydney, Australia. If
