INTERNSHIP (PRAC, 1-10 units)
This course provides students the opportunity to engage in the practice of law under the supervision of an attorney or judge.  The Clinical Internship faculty and staff work with students to obtain appropriate placement to meet the student's interests and needs.  Students may intern at courts, government agencies and private law offices.  During the course of the internship, students meet regularly with internship faculty to discuss their experiences.
This Seminar provides a forum for student interns to discuss their internship experiences with one another on a weekly basis.  These seminar meetings are in addition to individual private meetings with faculty supervisors.  Students are required to keep a daily journal and do short weekly readings on current topics related to the practice of law.  Topics include Advocacy, Law Reform, Ethics, and Equality.  Emphasis is on the often conflicting moral, professional, financial, personal and political values inherent in the profession.  There is no final exam or other written work requirement.  Enrollment may be limited.
