As part of the seminar course component of the TWC-Elon Legal Externship Program, fall students are participating in a legal practicum.


Legal externs receive the opportunity to merge legal skills cultivated this semester in their externship with the knowledge accumulated from law school courses by assisting in a pro-bono case on behalf of a DC area non-profit. At the completion of the project, the externs will be writing a legal journal article and submitting it for publication in a legal journal.


On Tuesday, September 25th, community activists and attorneys as well as the four legal externs met to discuss the progress of their legal research and theories. Externs participating in the program this fall include:


Karima Grady-Elon University School of Law

Meg Sparger-Elon University School of Law

Jack Westall-Elon University School of Law

Carolyn Cifra-University of Saskatchewan School of Law
