(LAWF-5001) - 4 UNIT

The Entertainment Law Placement Externship course is designed to complement the Entertainment Law Practicum (ELP) course. The Entertainment Law Placement Externship provides students with an opportunity to obtain off-campus placement in law firms and corporate legal departments and gain hands-on experience in the legal field.

Students will be responsible for obtaining their own field placements. Information concerning potential placements are available on the ELP website, but the Law School cannot assure students that a placement will be found by every student who seeks one. The search for a field placement should commence sufficiently in advance of the semester during which the student will take the ELP course so that the field placement will be in place no later than the beginning of the semester. Students will be supervised during the field placement by the Private Field Placement Department.

If a student is working a paid entertainment internship, the student may enroll in the ELP course for one unit for satisfying the other course requirements; credit for paid field work is not permitted. Thus, students working for pay cannot enroll in the Entertainment Law Placement Externship.

The course will be graded on a pass/fail basis. Students on academic probation are not eligible to enroll. All placements must be approved by the Private Field Placement Department.
