Fall or Spring Semester
During the fall and spring semesters, this program has two components: a 1-credit classroom course and an internship with a participating court in Austin for either 3 or 4 credits. Students must register for both components (graded pass/fail), for a total of 4 or 5 credits, and pay tuition. This program is available to only second and third-year law students.
Students must work in their placements for 180 hours to earn 3 credits or 240 hours to earn 4 credits. All internship hours must be worked during the semester.
Students who wish to enroll in the Judicial Internship Program must first apply for and obtain an internship with one of the participating courts in Austin. Students may not receive academic credit for interning with a state trial court.
