Government Internship

The Government Internship Program provides a great opportunity for students to work in government agencies for academic credit.  The course gives students valuable hands-on legal experience under the close supervision of experienced attorneys in the field, along with an academic course component taught by a member of the clinical faculty.  Interns develop their knowledge and professional skills while studying the role of government lawyers and legal institutions. The course addresses topics relevant to public service lawyering such as professionalism, ethics, access to justice, and advocacy.
