Corporate Apprenticeship Program | L4991
The Corporate Apprenticeship Program has cultivated relationships with the corporate counsel offices in more than a dozen companies in the Denver metropolitan areas over the last 28 years. The program's purpose is to provide the opportunity for law students to learn about the distinct challenges facing corporate counsel. This exclusive program is offered solely in the spring term and consists of four mandatory seminars and 15 hours of work per week (preferably on consecutive days) in the legal department of sponsoring corporations. The interactive seminars are designed to introduce students to the practice environment and operations of in-house corporate legal departments through the use of four written assignments. These assignments are designed, reviewed and taught by corporate counsel participating in the program.
Second, third and fourth year law students are eligible to apply to this distinguished program by submitting a cover letter and resume following the informational session held in October. Program chairs interview all applicants and consult with the participating companies to determine the best fit. Final selection is based on any relevant background work history, an enthusiasm for learning and a strong interest in working as corporate counsel.
