  • Internship Purpose & Objectives

    All paralegal students are required to complete an internship prior to graduation.  The internship is designed to acquaint the student with the actual practice of law by working as a paralegal under the supervision of an attorney.  The student gains experience by applying knowledge from prior classroom training, and the law office gains an eager worker.

    The objectives of the internship experience are:

    • To work under the supervision of a licensed attorney and with others in a law office or agency setting.
    • To apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, and to develop new skills by being involved in actual cases and projects.
    • To provide the student with important contact with the legal community which may lead to career opportunities.
