The internship program provides an opportunity for students to gain workplace experience. The student is placed in a law office or other firm using paralegals, under the supervision of an attorney. The internship is guided by prescribed learning outcomes that are specific to the type and orientation of the law firm or business in which the student is placed.
Students must complete a minimum of 135 hours (approximately 9 hours a week over the course of a 15 week semester). Students are encouraged to remain longer if the circumstances allow.
Student interns are to maintain a log of hours worked and the tasks that were performed.
