B547 Public Interest Internship Program

Description The Public Interest Externship Program encourages students to gain experience in public interest work by permitting students to obtain academic credit, typically 2 credit hours, for unpaid legal work done in public service venues (non-profits, legal services, local/state/federal government settings) within easy driving distance of Bloomington (Indianapolis and South-Central Indiana). Students are supervised by a faculty member at the law school as well as an attorney at the externship site. Students spend one full day (or in some instances two half-days; 8 hrs.) per week for 13 weeks (a total of 52 hours of work for each credit hour) at the externship site, and work under the supervision of an experienced attorney. Students do legal research and writing, observe and/or participate in client interviews, briefings, depositions, court hearings, etc. Examples of placements are Indiana Legal Services, Student Legal Services, municipal legal counsel#s office, IU Health, IU Foundation, etc.). Students gain insight in the day-to-day practice of the attorneys who supervise them. An integral part to the externship is the academic component, which consists of four class meetings per semester (Jan. 11 orientation, February 14, March 21, April 11), reflective essays, and a midterm and final evaluation of the placement. It is designed to encourage students to think reflectively and critically about the practice of law and the ethical issues it poses. Students seeking to enroll/register for this externship course and for an externship site must schedule an appointment with the Faculty Director of Externships and Judicial Clerkships (Inge Van der Cruysse, ivanderc@indiana.edu). Students may find postings for externship positions on CareerNet, or, they may find a placement through the Faculty Director. Students who want to propose their own externship site need to ensure the externship qualifies for academic credit and is preapproved prior to commitment to the placement. Notes: - at this point, students may not both be paid and receive academic credit for the same externship hours. - on meeting dates, students may choose from 2 alternate meeting times: 8-9 am or noon-1pm

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
