Information for Organizations Interested in Hosting a UT Law Student Intern

Legislative Internship Program

Thank you for your interest in hosting a student intern through the Legislative Internship Program at UT School of Law.  Dedicated supervising attorneys are critical to the success of our program, and we hope that you will join us in this educational endeavor. 

Overview:  Each student in our program pursues his or her own internship possibilities (often in consultation with faculty instructors), secures an offer from a potential placement, and applies to the faculty instructor for approval of the proposed placement and supervisor.  The faculty instructor contacts the proposed supervisor to discuss the program requirements and invite the supervisor to participate.  Once the placement and the supervisor are approved, the student is authorized to register for the course. 
We use Symplicity, an employment management system operated by our Career Services Office, to inform students about offices interested in hosting interns for academic credit.  After your posting has been submitted through Symplicity, we may also advertise the opportunity directly to student groups and classes with relevant interests.

If you are interested in hosting a law student, please review the Description of Program.
