In our final workshop, we will first outline the rules, guidelines and standards applicable to supervision in an externship setting. We will analyze the unique relationships between and among site supervisors, externship students, and externship faculty. The discussion will also incorporate proposed ABA Accreditation Standard 304(c), requiring field placement supervisors to, among other things, provide students with “substantial lawyering experiences,” multiple opportunities to perform in the role of lawyer, and meaningful feedback. How can we best prepare site supervisors to carry out these tasks while balancing our other responsibilities at school?
