Corporate Counsel Externship Program

Fall 2024 Corporate Counsel Externship Program–Applications Available Now

For UC Law SF 2L students:
Fall 2024 Corporate Counsel Externship Program (CCEP) applications are available now!  Next semester, partner companies include Visa, DoorDash, Airbnb, Lyft, 23andMe, Kaiser, Plaid, Chime and more.  See the CCEP Sharknet page for the full list.
Program & Seminar Basics
Students earn 4-5 fieldwork credits for working in-house at vetted non-profit and for-profit companies.  In addition, students enroll in a 2-unit, weekly seminar that teaches the role of corporate counsel, integral lawyering competencies, and the ability to self-develop and learn from practice.
To learn more about the program and apply, please review the Fall 2024 CCEP Student Information Packet and Application on the CCEP Sharknet page. The packet provides an overview of the program, application timeline, and detailed information about each partner, including the work the company anticipates giving to an extern.  The application is due on Monday, March 11 at 9:00 am (the Monday after Spring Break).  Late applications will not be accepted.
All applicants are required to have met with the Career Development Office (for a 45-minute appointment) to review a recent resume and cover letter (it need not be a resume or cover letter specifically for CCEP).  If you’ve met with CDO to review these documents during Spring 2024 or Fall 2023, you have satisfied this requirement, though a recent meeting with CDO specific to a position or program is always best.  You may meet with any CDO counselor, but the office has specific slots for CCEP applicants.  If you are having trouble finding an appointment, please email
