Under special circumstances one day of week may be considered. Placements are available with large and small law firms, corporations, and legal service and government agencies.

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.

Students without legal experience are strongly encouraged to take this course, which may be taken twice for a total of six units. Individual counseling for students interested in doing an internship is available. Please contact the instructor.
