Internships present great opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience, explore areas of practice, improve their knowledge and skills, and build their professional networks. Student interns work closely with experienced attorneys and judges in nonprofit organizations, government agencies, domestic and international courts, and legislative offices. Each internship consists of closely supervised work at an approved field placement and an academic component taught by faculty. Field supervisors are experienced attorneys and judges committed to helping educate students, and they provide challenging and interesting professional experiences to interns in their offices.
All internships require an application. Internship courses are graded on a pass/fail basis, and there is no final paper or examination. No salary may be received for an internship (although a student may be able to accept a limited stipend for unusual living or educational expenses).
