(NOTE: Students must complete a minimum of 120 hours at placement; 10 to 11 hours for at least twelve weeks). An internship placement provides students with an opportunity to explore legally-related career interests while applying knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to “real life” situations, working with clients under the supervision of an experienced attorney. Interns are responsible for finding a site, securing a placement, and making all necessary arrangements.

Though several placements may be contacted, interns are required to work with only one placement during the course.
