School hosts first virtual legal externship supervisor training


The University of Georgia School of Law hosted the first virtual version of the Georgia Association for Legal Externships supervisor attorney training in collaboration with the other Georgia law schools. Approximately 150 attorneys attended the training on Zoom which covered issues important to legal externship supervision in 2020. Topics included: remote supervision, ethical supervision in the time of Covid-19 and exploring anti-racist supervision.

During the pandemic, the School of Law's many externship programs have adapted to allow students to work remotely while gaining meaningful experience with judges, government agencies, nonprofits, corporate counsel offices, prosecutors, public defenders and capital defender offices.
