Students will be assisted in obtaining a paid practicum placement. Students will participate in the following instructional sessions: résumé and cover letter preparation; interviewing techniques; and practicum search and follow-up. The student will complete a six-month (five full working days per week) paid practicum in a law firm, government law department, corporate law department, or other law-related employment as approved by the practicum instructor. The practicum employer will provide meaningful projects appropriate for an entry-level paralegal designed to encourage personal responsibility, independent problem solving, and the application of high ethical standards. The student must be supervised by a lawyer during the practicum.
