Educational Opportunities and Outreach
Law Extern Program
KUCTC started hosting law externs in 2005 and typically places an interested candidate in each of its Lawrence and KUMC campus offices during the fall and spring semesters. Candidates are usually recommended by faculty affiliated with the externship program at the KU School of Law or UMKC School of Law. Course credit is provided in lieu of salary. Legal externs are responsible for drafting confidential disclosure agreements and preparing license agreements based on negotiations among KU, KUMC and third party companies and/or individuals. Externs also act as liaisons between campus researchers and inventors and intellectual property/ patent attorneys at major firms across the nation.
