Practicing Law Globally


The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia where Northwestern Law students have held externships under the supervision of Professor David Scheffer.

Among the many opportunities to practice the law globally, Northwestern Law offers semester-long international externships, in which students work at organizations such as foreign courts and non-governmental organizations in exchange for academic credit. The externship offers students a full immersion into the legal, political, and social landscape of an international organization while simultaneously allowing them to apply their legal acumen to complex and unique situations. Professor David Scheffer, director of the Center for International Human Rights supervises the program, and each fall holds a briefing to inform students of the many exciting global opportunities available.
