We are 6 law students at Fourah Bay College, Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. This is a blog about our experiences working as externs (like an intern but based in the field not the office) for 3 Non-Governmental Organisations in Freetown that work to defend the human rights of the poor and vulnerable in Sierra Leone.
The externs in professional mode

Externs Participate in Training by UK Lawyers
Although the externship programme is over, AdvocAid continues to maintain a relationship with the former externs.
On 23 September 2013, the externs were part of a training organised by Project Umubano (some volunteer lawyers from the UK) and AdvocAid. The training covered client care, advanced advocacy skills and pre-trial detention case law. It was a great training and networking opportunity for the externs.
