Family Law: Become Practice Ready

Domestic Violence Externship

Summer, Fall and Spring

In 2007, the University of Oregon School of Law partnered with Legal Aid Services of Oregon and the Klamath Medical Services Bureau Foundation to provide a unique externship for students interested in family law and rural law practice.

The Domestic Violence Externship provides a student a unique opportunity to train one-one-one under an attorney experienced in representing victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The externship occurs off-site, at the Klamath Falls office of Legal Aid Services of Oregon. The student works 8 weeks full time in the summer or 14 weeks full time during either the fall or spring semester. Given its location, the externship focuses on rural law practice and particularly the challenges faced by low-income survivors and their attorneys.
