Open only to admitted certificate program students. An Internship bridges the gap between the classroom and the legal work world. Students are placed in a legal setting of their choice for two days per week for 15 weeks (120 hours.) Under special circumstances one day of week may be considered. Students are also required to attend monthly Saturday morning seminars on ethics, interpersonal communications in the law office, résumé writing, office politics, time management, and stress prevention. Placements are available with large and small law firms, corporations, and legal service and government agencies. Students without legal experience are strongly encouraged to take this course, which may be taken twice for a total of six units. This course is graded on a credit/no credit basis. Special note to students with full-time job commitments: The Bar Association of San Francisco Volunteer Legal Services program offers students training in its pro bono clinics, usually held on evenings and Saturdays.

An Internship Application must be completed and returned to Pat Medina. Email to request an application or pick one up in the Paralegal Library room 615.
