Before you start your senior year, all Legal Studies students MUST complete 20 hours of internship seminars and 50 hours of an unpaid internship. Internship does count as a class credit, which is a unique feature of our internship program. Students have had internships with Congressmen, judges, the FBI (only offered to two students in the nation), detectives, the courthouse, police officers, the Office of Emergency Management, forensic scientists, JAG officers and many more. Your internship does not have to be with a lawyer, or detective - it just has to have some sort of legal component. Many students continue their internships long after the 50 hours, and for many students, it turns into a paid position. Some alumnus have even returned to their internships after college and have fulltime jobs with their former supervisors.
