Indiana Legal Services Externship

B562 is taught by Farnsworth, C. Reichard

Law students work at Indiana Legal Services (ILS), a nonprofit law firm that provides free civil legal assistance to eligible low-income people throughout the state of Indiana. ((link)). Second- and third-year law students work under the close supervision of four staff attorneys. Students enroll for credit for one semester (typically their first), then move to paying positions in subsequent semesters.

Any student interested in enrolling in B562 must first apply to and be accepted by ILS as an intern. To receive academic credit for clinic work, students must work a minimum of ten hours per week in the clinic and submit reflective essays approximately every two weeks. Prior approval by Prof. Farnsworth is necessary to enroll in the course.
