Program Description:


UGA - Law - GEO Externship

The law school’s Dean Rusk International Law Center coordinates GEOs – four-to-twelve-week summer Global Extern placements in a variety of law-office settings around the world. Over the last fifteen years, more than 200 Georgia Law students have taken part in these GEOs, working with attorney supervisors and local staff. They return to Athens with new colleagues and mentors, with law-practice skills, and with deeper appreciation of the global legal profession.

Students secure placements tailored to their career goals with the aid of the Dean Rusk International Law Center, which each year develops potential sites to which students may apply. Recent placements include:


  • Law firms like DLA Piper in Russia, GÖRG in Germany, Priti Suri & Associates in India, Siqueira Castro Advogadoes in Brazil, and King & Wood Mallesons in China
  • Government agencies like the Cambodia Ministry of Arts & Antiquities and the Guyana Office of the Attorney General
  • Corporate legal departments like the Clorox Company in Argentina and Fererro in Luxembourg
  • Intergovernmental organizations like the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in France, the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) in Italy, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SREP) in Samoa
  • Nongovernmental organizations like War Child in the Netherlands, Boat People SOS in Thailand, and Women in Law and Development in Ghana


Assisted by the Dean Rusk International Law Center, many University of Georgia School of Law students receive stipends from the law school, while others secure external funding. Many split their summers, often combining a GEO with the Georgia Law-Leuven Centre School of Global Governance.​
