Externships & Practicums

Law students who are enrolled in other law schools, as well as other professional or graduate students who are enrolled in medicine, public health, nursing, and social work, are invited to apply through their schools to participate in HeLP’s externship and electives programs. Participants assist with client representation and thereby gain an understanding of the multiple determinants of children’s health, experience interdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving, and develop experience in dealing with the health issues of low-income children and their families.
