Description of Field Work

The Justice and Accountability Center of Louisiana “responds to the needs of incarcerated and ex-incarcerated populations in Louisiana, who are marginalized by both social stigma and the difficulty of communicating outside of prison walls, while changing the way lawyers provide services to these individuals.” Externs at JAC can expect to assist attorneys with criminal expungements including legislative issues studying the impact of expungements in Louisiana. Students will also assist with post-conviction legal issues including researching, writing and assisting attorneys.

Externship Requirements
