Field Placement Office (Employer) Welcome

Welcome to the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law's Externship Program website - we greatly appreciate your interest in joining us in our mission to ensure students receive practical experience.  

At Loyola, we strive to produce lawyers who are well prepared for the practice of law.  Academic or classroom teaching is fundamental to our educational formula, but Loyola recognizes that a field work component can add significantly to the traditional classroom learning that comprises the majority of a student's legal education.  And so, your contribution is vital. Externship placements provide "hands on" education in the practice of law, and students see first-hand the complexity of issues and essential lawyering skills beyond learning doctrine.

We realize mentoring and feedback requires time and effort, and strive to do everything possible to support our externship placements and site supervisors. Whether you are an existing site supervisor or interested in becoming one, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office with any questions by calling Professor Hector Linares at (504)861-5560 or emailing him at
