Corporate Counsel Externship

Students enrolled in the Corporate Counsel Externship are placed in the legal department of a business oriented organization on a part-time basis for one academic term. The program is comprised of seven credits in total. Five credits are allocated to the experiential component (Law 379) and two credits are allocated to the academic component (Law 380).

  • Apply theoretical concepts learned in the classroom to practical legal and business matters in a particular industry;
  • Gain solicitor’s practice based experience in a supervised environment; and
