POL 471: Seminar and Internship Program in Law.
One or two semesters, each 4 credits. (Limited enrollment.) Students attend a weekly seminar on legal problems and serve from eight to ten hours a week as legal interns. The seminar provides a structured program to relate individual student experiences to one another and to broader intellectual issues. The internships are generally in areas in which lawyers are particularly understaffed, e.g., in Legal Aid offices, social service agencies related to courts, complaint bureaus of consumer affairs agencies, and investigative offices of district attorneys. PREREQ: Instructor's permission. Recommended: One or more law-oriented courses.
