Preparing Students for Summer Externships and Employment

Friday
April 6
11:30 am to 12:15 pm

Alexandra Siek, Public Services Coordinator, University of New Mexico Law Library

Many law schools find a need to prepare their students - particularly the rising second years - for summer externships and employment, most often because first year curriculums are insufficient in preparing them for their summer legal research needs. This presenter will discuss her experiences at the University of New Mexico School of Law in supporting the research needs of students seeking summer externships and employment, and how that support has developed and continues to adapt. Attendees will also have opportunities to learn from their colleagues what they’ve tried at their own institutions and what has – and hasn’t - worked.
