Students work full-time under the supervision of experienced attorneys in government, nonprofit and legislative offices in the U.S..  Interns immerse themselves in practice, developing their professional skills and studying the role of lawyers and legal institutions.  The course addresses topics relevant to public service lawyering in varied settings, including professionalism, ethics, advocacy, access to justice, the legal profession, and the intersection of law and policy.  Each student consults with the instructor to arrange his or her field placement.
