Internships are a vital component of the Concentration. They enable students to connect their classroom work with practical experience and training in legal technology and innovation. The experience also affords students the opportunity to reflect upon the career paths they may wish to pursue.
Concentrators must complete a minimum three (3) credit internship. The requirement may be satisfied by:
- Completion of an appropriate internship through the Internship Program; OR
- Completion of a non-credit summer or semester internship that has been preapproved by the Concentration Director and/or the Administrative Director of Concentrations; OR
- An approved waiver of the internship requirement for qualifying Evening Division students, as set forth below.
Potential Internship Waiver for Evening Division Students
The Law School recognizes that Evening division students may be limited in pursing internship opportunities. Accordingly, Evening Division students working full-time in positions directly involving legal technology and innovation may apply for a waiver of the internship requirement by submitting a professional portfolio demonstrating substantial professional exposure to such work. The Concentration Director will assess waiver requests on a case-by-case basis by evaluating students' professional portfolios. Students who are granted a waver of the Internship requirement will be expected to take three (3) additional credits in Concentration elective courses.
