The Justice Center sponsors internship programs that provide unique opportunities for students to obtain academic credit for working with non-profit organizations, the legislature and government agencies, and courts.  Interns observe the legal system at work and engage in legal research and writing under the supervision of practicing lawyers and judges.  Students find that internships hone their practical skills and significantly broaden their understanding of the law. 

Internship Programs:

Students are eligible to enroll in all internships after completing two semesters. No compensation may be received for internships (unless noted). All internships require an application, available on the Clinics and Internships websites.
