The program was started to address the critical need of increasing the number of Latino/as exposed to federal practice, but importantly to provide Latino/a students an opportunity that many would not otherwise have in the competitive environment of federal judicial externships. The Program strives to provide Latino/a students with exposure to federal civil and criminal litigation, with an aim of encouraging these students to eventually consider applying for federal externships and pursuing federal practice.
