Field Placement (Externship) Form A: Student Proposal

This Form A: Student Proposal and Form B: Supervisor Agreement are both required to register for credit hours. Please be aware of the following: 

  • Before registering you should receive email confirmation from the Director of Externships that both forms have been recorded and approved. Submitting this form does not constitute approval for placements. 
  • Your electronic signature here is considered verified by your username on the Nebraska network. Please be sure to register using your Huskers email account. 
  • Review the FAQ for questions on hours and class time before submitting this form. 
  • Students should email-introduce their supervisor to Elsbeth Magilton before the start of the position to ensure they are in contact and have the correct information.
  • You will be tasked with developing more specific educational goals prior to start of class. Details will be made available in Canvas. 
Class year at the time of placement (if summer, select the year you're starting in August) Required
Session of placement Required
Credit hours Required
Note, 42.5 hours are required for one academic credit hour. Class time and prep should be logged and count towards that requirement. Placements over 6 hours require special and unique faculty approval and must be a distinct and individual program, such as our semester in Washington DC program.
Proposed start date Required
Proposed end date Required
Is the proposed onsite supervisor a licensed attorney? Required
If the onsite supervisor is not a licensed attorney the Director of Externships must approve that work still meets the standards for legal academic credit and submit their decision to the faculty Curriculum Committee.
Has your onsite supervisor received a copy of the Supervisor Manual and Expectations and/or spoke with the Director of Externships? Required
A copy of the manual is available on Form B: Supervisor Agreement. It is also strongly recommended that students email-introduce their supervisor to Elsbeth Magilton before the start of the position to ensure they are in contact.
I recognize that this form does NOT register me for the appropriate credit hours and that I must register for my hours in MyRed after this form has been accepted. Required
Note, use of your institutional (Husker) email is required to verify your form.
