Other ways to connect and support Elon Law students

North Carolina Advocates for Justice sponsored Elon Law’s weekly Coffee & Conversation with assorted bagels and spreads enjoyed by dozens of students, faculty, and staff on February 13, 2024.

Sponsor a Coffee & Conversation: Elon Law offers weekly Coffee & Conversation events that can be sponsored by employers. These half-hour events are a great way to meet and engage with our students over various treats accompanied by coffee and tea. We would love for you to participate – for more information about hosting opportunities, contact Elon Law Event Coordinator Delia Rhodes at or 336-279-9208.

Residencies and Externships: In our signature Residency-in-Practice Program, second-year law students work 32-36 hours a week over a 10-week trimester with their judge or attorney supervisor and a faculty member to create and implement a learning plan that develops an increased proficiency in professional legal skills and in an area of law practice.

Students also have the option to complete an externship for academic credit, either before or after their Residency-in-Practice. Students who complete an externship engage in a substantial lawyering experience reasonably similar to the experience of a lawyer advising or representing a client or engaging in other lawyering tasks, under the supervision of an attorney or judge. An externship takes place part-time, either in the summer or during a non-Residency trimester. Students arrange their own externship in consultation with the externship director. Questions about Elon Law’s Residency-in-Practice Program and externships may contact Associate Professor Katherene Conner, Director of Residencies, at or 336-279-9311.
