Requirements and Components

The Judicial Internship Program requirements and components vary depending upon whether the student interns during a regular semester or the summer. During the fall or spring semester, students intern part-time for participating courts in Austin while taking other law school courses. During the summer, students may also work for approved courts outside Austin. Students intern part-time while attending summer school or intern on a full-time basis for all or part of the summer. Many students split the summer between a judicial internship and another legal position.

A student may take a judicial internship for academic credit only once during law school. Students who are interning for academic credit may not receive compensation.
