Corporate Counsel Externship & Corporate Counsel Seminar
Through our Corporate Counsel Clinical Externship Program, students earn academic credit while working two to three days per week in the in-house legal offices of prominent for-profit corporations in and around Rhode Island and southern New England. Student externs will be exposed to the various ways in which law is practiced in-house and for corporate clients, gaining hands-on experience working side-by-side with some of the region’s leading corporate attorneys. Students attend a two-hour weekly seminar to teach the professionalism and lawyering skills required in an in-house legal practice.
