The Business Practice Clinic is an externship program that sends third-year students out to work either full-time or part-time in an agency or law firm. The externs are trained in the clinical program and during a biweekly class. There is also a three-credit class that students complete before they go into extern placement. It was a big challenge to complete the placement class in only two weeks because of the students’ busy schedules, so we began offering pieces of it online. We are moving more and more of this course to our online platform. This article discusses our experience in preparing third-year students for a transactional clinical experience through the course and how this has been accomplished in an online classroom environment.
