This program is open to students who have completed their first two semesters.

In the fall and spring, the Judicial Internship Program has two concurrent components: an internship with a court for 3 or 4 credits and a 1-credit course. Students are required to complete at least 180 or 240 hours of work (for 3 or 4 credits) in the internship placement during the semester. The 1-credit course meets weekly for an hour and a half and typically concludes several weeks before the end of the semester. Before applying to the instructor for approval to register, the student must secure an internship with a participating court in Austin.
