The course has two components: a field placement and a concurrent weekly class. The class will meet in the late afternoon or early evening at the Texas Legislature or the Law School (to be determined). Interns spend at least 150 hours over at least ten weeks during the semester on law-related work at field placements at the Texas Legislature. They are supervised by attorneys with two or more years of experience who have agreed to participate in the internship program. Students apply to pre-approved placements and, once an internship is offered, submit an online application for the course. A student may also identify a potential placement outside the pre-approved list and propose it to the instructor for approval. See Students – Finding a Placement.
This is a 4-credit course (graded pass/fail) open to students who have completed their first two semesters. The course is taught by Hugh Brady.
