Internships are a great way to gain work experience in your field of interest before you graduate.

Many internships are non-credited, non-academic experiences, intended to allow you to apply the knowledge you have gained during your academic experience. Some internships allow you to earn academic credit. For these, you must work closely with a professor who directs an academic component of the internship that has been agreed upon and planned in advance of the experience.


Mock Trial

Learning "games" that re-create the procedures, dynamics and drama of civil or criminal court trials, Mock Trial provides a rewarding opportunity for students interested in the law, or those that want to put their theatrical or debating talents to the test in intercollegiate competition.
