Legal Externship Seminar: Corporate | L5031

The Externship Office is divided into practice-specific programs. Students enrolled in each of these programs are required to also enroll in an accompanying, for-credit seminar that will address topics specific to each practice area. This seminar is designed for students who are enrolled in the Corporate Externship Program for the first time. If the student has previously completed an externship in the Corporate Externship Program, he or she does not need to take the seminar again. PLEASE NOTE: this seminar is not intended for students enrolled in the Corporate Apprenticeship Program. That program carries its own, separate seminar.

The course will address topics specific to the practice of law in a General Counsel’s office, such as managing a wide variety of substantive legal issues in the context of a GC’s office, dealing with complex business transactions, identifying and navigating challenging business/legal ethical issues, professionalism, effective advocacy, negotiations, and client relationships.

This course is designed for students who are taking their first externship in the Corporate Externship Program, and such students will be given priority. Please place yourself on the wait list for the class; once you have submitted the paperwork required to be enrolled in an externship, the Externship Office will enroll you in this course. If space allows, students who have taken an externship in this area in the past will also be considered.

Please consult the Legal Externship Office website for information on enrolling in a legal externship.
