Delaware Public Interest Externship
If working for the public good appeals to you, the Delaware Public Interest Externship offers a great opportunity to acquire practical experience while providing legal aid to those in need. As a Widener Law student, you can work as an extern at a public interest agency of your choice, earning academic credit and cultivating professional relationships.

In addition to working at a public interest agency under the supervision of a practicing attorney, you will attend a class to discuss what you’ve learned and how to resolve any issues you’ve encountered. You will earn two to four credits depending on how many hours you work per week. The Delaware Public Interest Externship offers an excellent opportunity to practice the unique skill set required for the practice of public interest law.
