Suffolk University Law School Research Paper No. 12-38
The goal of this article is to help law school externship clinicians guide law students through for-profit field placements. First, this article discusses the outcomes sought in traditional non-profit field placements, and the methodologies that externship clinicians use to guide, enhance, and assess the students’ experiences. Second, this article discusses educational benefits available in for-profit placements that may not be as readily available at non-profits. Third, using similar methodologies used for non-profit placements, the author suggests topics for reflection externship clinicians can use to help guide, enhance, and assess the for-profit experience for students.
