4 EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING 2

5 The best way for students to learn what it means to be a lawyer is to do what lawyers do. And Georgetown Law is uniquely situated to provide experiential opportunities for our students. Our faculty is deeply engaged with the major issues of the day. Our Institutes provide a bridge between the legal academy and practicing professionals. Our location just steps from the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, and numerous other governmental and non-governmental agencies allow our students unparalleled access to those places where the law is made and enforced. Here at Georgetown Law, we offer three different types of experiential learning courses, all of which are designed to help students apply the theories and skills that they have learned in the classroom to a real lawyering context. In externships, students work at external placements such as government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and courts and, under the direction of attorney supervisors, engage in work commensurate with that of a first-year lawyer. Students also attend individual class sessions that are directly relevant to their work. In practicum courses, students work on projects or cases on behalf of a supervising attorney, while studying law in action in an associated seminar. In clinics, students work as lead attorneys; they learn to practice law by representing real clients facing real problems and, with extensive support and guidance, are responsible for all facets of their case or project. Students in all of these experiential courses take initiative, make decisions, and are accountable for the results. They reflect on, and learn from, their experiences. They develop an appreciation for the character of the legal profession, and their place in it. Simply put, experiential courses allow students to experience the law in three dimensions to move outside the classroom and engage in the world. In the pages that follow, you will read about our rich and varied experiential offerings. These courses cover both civil and criminal issues. They include litigation as well as transactional, legislative, and policy matters. They give students the opportunity to practice in local, national, and international contexts. This commitment to providing students with rich opportunities to act as lawyers has made Georgetown Law a national leader in experiential education. 3

6 sharmi Das, J.D., 2014 While books, outlines, exams, and briefs are critically important to academic success, my externship experiences have ensured that I never forget why I came to law school: to become an excellent advocate But in order to be truly excellent, you need those extra somethings that come with practical, hands-on experience in a real-world work environment [those] experiences have enhanced my academic journey at Georgetown in a truly unique way. While Georgetown s incomparable academic experience is indispensable to my success in the legal field, its commitment to preparing its students through experiential learning reflects the critical understanding that we will be better lawyers if our classroom experiences are coupled with the world outside. There is simply no replacement for the experiential learning program here at Georgetown and I am grateful for having benefited from it so immensely! 4

8 6 externships

9 Externships offer Georgetown law students the opportunity to earn credit for unpaid work in the public sector. Under the direct supervision of an attorney, students are able to engage in work that is commensurate with projects that would be given to an entry-level attorney. Students become a part of the fabric of an organization and gain exposure to practice and application of laws and concepts that they have studied in the classroom. Facilitated by our unique location in the heart of Washington DC, most students choose to work for the federal government, though a substantial number choose to work on Capitol Hill, in judicial chambers, or in local or national non-profit agencies. Our students might attend Congressional hearings, draft motions for trial, or witness the development of policies that will impact our entire nation. They might assist individuals seeking asylum, brief businesses about dealing with climate change, or work on international trade disputes. Because students develop their own placements, they can tailor their work experience to their own personal interests. In addition to selecting their field work, each student also participates in an orientation to set their learning goals, and chooses the class sessions that will best support their experience. The classes cover a range of issues, and students pick and choose among them to develop a customized program of study that is relevant to their field experience. Classes include: Making Mentors, Managing Up, Non-Traditional Legal Speaking, Communicating with Clients, and many more. In short, Georgetown s externship program allows students to meld work experience with classroom learning in a way that supports their personal needs and goals. Students pursue externships for many different reasons. Some students do an externship in an attempt to discover whether they like a particular area of legal practice, and whether that area is a good fit for their career and lifestyle goals. Others do an externship to enhance their resume and demonstrate their commitment to a type of law. Some students see externships as an opportunity to refine a particular set of legal skills. And yet others pursue an externship out of intellectual curiosity and a desire to gain specialized experience in a particular area. Whatever their motivation for enrolling, students in Georgetown Law s externship program frequently develop professional connections that make them more competitive, and better prepared, for their summer and post-graduate jobs. 7

10 8 Keigan Mull

11 Externships Keigan Mull, J.D., 2013 My first externship was at small non-profit, First Star, devoted to fighting for the legal rights of children, and I had an amazing experience. I truly enjoyed my placement at First Star and was rejuvenated for the rest of my time in law school. At the same time as this externship, I was able to explore my interest in international law. I took a class on international trade law and found my passion. I hoped that I could find a placement in the field the next semester and was lucky enough to get another externship at the U.S. International Trade Commission. This externship confirmed the passion that I felt in the classroom. It allowed me to attend current events and network in the field that I would not have been able to do otherwise. My externships have been incredibly beneficial experiences, so much so that I plan on interning during my third year of law school even without receiving academic credit. This summer I will be working at the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development in Geneva, Switzerland, and feel extremely confident that my externship experiences have prepared me for this opportunity. 9

12 CLASS offerings Through guided reflection, our externship classes help students negotiate the wide range of professional skills necessary for success in the workplace. Georgetown Law students work in over 300 placements during the school year. The placements range from human rights NGOs to states attorney s offices, from federal agencies to judicial chambers to public defender services and more. Students choose from an array of classes that best support the work they are doing each week. Some of these classes (drawn from a longer list that varies by semester) include: Professionalism Managing Up Making Mentors/Networking Ethical Decision-Making Electronic Professionalism Diversity and Conflict in the Workplace Communicating with Clients Collaboration Non-litigation Skills Working Effectively on the Hill Strategic Planning Communicating Legal Concepts to Non-Lawyers Interest Analysis Emotional Intelligence & Leadership Civil Access to Justice Legislative and Policy Drafting Non-traditional Legal Writing Writing an Editorial Writing a One-Pager Legislative Drafting Drafting a Blog Post Legal Impossibilities: Advocating for Clients Facing Unjust Laws Reflection on Practice Work-Life Balance Appellate Lawyering Self-Assesment Direct Legal Services Group Dynamics Women s Rights Secondary Trauma Environmental Practice Judicial Placements Legislative/Policy Placements Indigent Criminal Defense Federal Criminal Prosecution Human Rights Lawyering 10

15 Externships Profile Mara Apostol, J.D., 2014 Externship Placement The Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia Externship Classes attended Managing Up Communicating with Clients Criminal Defense Reflection Creating a Foundation for a Targeted Pathway When the stakes are so high - when you really want to be a public defender, as I do, and when you have the privilege of working at PDS - the pressure to make a good impression can be overwhelming I m learning how to better understand and serve my supervisor s needs, and she sees that. This whole experience has been enlightening not only in terms of the substantive law and procedure I ve had the opportunity to grapple with, but also because it s underscored how important it is to take control of my experience and to do everything I can not only to deliver, but to make damn sure people know I m delivering.

16 Said Saba, J.D., 2013 I externed at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. This was my first real-world exposure to the legal profession. There s still a lot I need to learn, but the externship has made me feel confident that what I ve been learning in law school so far has real-world application. I also got a chance to work closely with a federal judge who took the educational experience of his interns seriously, and he assigned work to us accordingly. 14

18 16 PRACTICUM COURSES

19 Practicum courses offer students an opportunity to work on projects or cases under the direction of a supervising attorney, while studying law in action in an associated seminar. These courses provide a wonderful opportunity for students to become substantive experts on a particular topic, cultivate a range of skills, and begin to develop a professional identity. They allow students to build networks that can be tapped for future internships and jobs. And they foster in students the confidence they need to work as lawyers upon graduation. In these ways, practicum courses serve as a bridge between the law school classroom and the legal profession. Practicum courses take one of two forms: students are placed in fieldwork consistent with the subject matter of the course or students work on a project with their teacher, a practicing lawyer in the field. The practicum includes a seminar that uses the students experience as text and prepares students for their work experiences by familiarizing them with the relevant substantive frameworks (both legal and non-legal), as well as the skills they will employ (again, both legal and non-legal). Students reflect on their work experiences in a supportive classroom environment with professors and classmates who are engaged in similar professional undertakings. The practicum program benefits tremendously from Georgetown Law s location in Washington D.C. and its connection to experts who are willing to bring students into their work. We offer a practicum on mediation, for example, in which students are trained, supervised and act as mediators on cases filed with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel. Other practicum students conduct research for a member of the U.N. Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Students use specialized technology to develop legal apps to assist various governmental and non-governmental organizations in their work. And students are placed within a number of different congressional offices on Capitol Hill and study how law is made in the companion seminar. 17

Racial Discrimination in International Law This practicum focuses on the work of the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), of which the professor is a member. Students investigate the situation of minority groups in the countries being scrutinized by CERD in its upcoming session and document their findings in their own shadow reports.

28 Learning from Practitioners in the field I really liked the practicum course because the small class size enabled us to build relationships with real experts in the field. Our professors were very engaged and eager to make sure we learned and enjoyed our experiences. The professors, who had significant litigation experience in their field, could talk about the challenges you don t read in court opinions, like recruiting or managing clients, interacting with judges, how a government s internal review processes in the litigation office affects the progress of litigation, how a particular administrative agency s review process works. Occasionally, we d read opinions in which the professors were the attorneys in the case. The professors were able to give us a Behind the Music -type view of how the case played out. With the field placement, we got to see how the whole nonprofit functions -- everything from intra-office chains to participating in multi-organization coalition meetings. 26
