Description

Internship subjects enable students to apply their academic learning to a professional context and in so doing, produce better-equipped legal graduates. This subject provides students with the opportunity to obtain practical legal experience and to develop professional skills through work with a local host organisation. An internship exposes students to a 'live working environment' of practitioners, professionals and peers and can help shape future directions and career options. An internship enables students to apply their learning to practice and can help to enrich and enliven the classroom experience. Students further develop key personal and professional skills and attributes including reflective practice and the capacity to identify gaps in knowledge and skills.

The subject involves participation in an internship for 11 weeks during the teaching session as well as certain academic requirements for the subject including a pre-departure preparatory meeting, reflective journals and a post-internship presentation. Information about internship opportunities, application and enrolment into this subject can be found on the Law website. Find out more about the newly established Redfern Legal Centre Practice Clinic.
