Students from The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (CUA Law) had the opportunity to demonstrate their practical, focused, and connected legal education at the CUA
Law Annual Externship and Clinic Fair
on February 7, 2018.

Attending employers included recruiters and CUA alumni from government agencies, non-profit
organizations, and CUA Law's own clinics. The 2018 Spring Externship and Clinic Fair brought in various employers to meet with students for table talks, offer résumé drop-off, and limited one-on- one interviews before and after the event.

Through CUA Law’s externship program, students earn course credits and gain practical skills working at non-profit organizations, government agencies, in congressional offices, for judges, law firms, trade associations, and corporations.

Student externs have the opportunity to assist with representation of clients, with legislative and other policy development, and with a wide range of other lawyering activities. This valuable exposure to lawyers and legal institutions creates professional relationships that stretch beyond a student's time in law school. Many use externships to explore and focus on possible career paths and to clarify their professional goals.

Employers are always welcome to post internship and externship opportunities even if they did not attend the fair. To learn more about the work the Law School's Office of Career and Professional Development does for employers, students, and alumni click here.
