Judicial externs are law school students who work in chambers for a judge in exchange for school credit, a stipend from an outside agency or to gain experience working in the court system. Externs perform such tasks as file evaluation, legal research, or preparation of memoranda. Externs may work along with staff attorneys or directly and solely with a judge.

The Office of the Chief Judge offers law students an off-campus externship as an academic opportunity to experience the day-to-day operations of the state court system.
