In 1993, six Los Angeles area ABA-accredited law schools, including Southwestern, formed a consortium, the Greater Los Angeles Consortium of Externships (G.L.A.C.E.). The purpose of the consortium is to share externship-related information and to develop joint standards for the field supervision of externs by field supervisors. This G.L.A.C.E.-endorsed field supervision manual incorporates those standards and highlights common workplace issues that are often of interest to students and supervisors. For more information, please read the G.L.A.C.E. Field Placement Supervision Manual (PDF).
