Please review the course information on the internship website. This clinical internship focuses on lawyering for the public in government settings. Students engage in legal work in public service offices, gaining hands-on experience that they reflect upon and analyze in a weekly class. Assignments address topics relevant to the legal profession and professional identity, including ethics, advocacy and communication skills, and professional self-development. Placement supervisors are experienced attorneys who broadly expose students to the legal activities of their offices, oversee varied and demanding assignments, and provide regular feedback on student performance. The instructor consults with students about possible government placements, and each placement must be approved by the instructor prior to registration. Students are required to work at least 150 hours at their internships, and students may not receive a salary for their internship work. Students who have previously received credit through any of the other Internship courses (nonprofit, legislative, judicial, etc.) are eligible to enroll in this course. Credits: 4 (graded pass/fail)
