Description
Please review the course page on the clinical website.
This clinical internship focuses on lawyering for the public in health law settings in the nonprofit and government fields.  Students work closely with experienced attorneys, gaining hands-on experience that they reflect upon and analyze in a weekly class.  The course addresses topics relevant to health law in public service settings, such as access to benefits and services, interdisciplinary advocacy, the role of lawyers, ethics, and professional self-development. 

Placement supervisors are experienced attorneys who broadly expose students to the legal activities of their offices, oversee varied and demanding assignments, and provide regular feedback on student performance.  The instructor consults with students about possible placements, and each placement must be approved by the instructor prior to registration. 

Students are required to work at least 180 hours at their internships, and students may not receive a salary for their internship work.  Class is held weekly for 50 minutes. 

Credits:  4 (graded pass/fail)
