Learning Goals

The Law, Societies & Justice internship program seeks to create a connection between academic coursework and ‘real world’ experience. The objectives of the internship are to:

  • Provide students with insights into the workings of law in practice;
  • Scrutinize and ‘test’ some of the theories and concepts found in the academic literature against ‘real world’ practice;
  • Initiate career development and goals, and
  • Provide 100 hours of local community service.

Students work with a variety of governmental and non-governmental agencies, including law enforcement agencies, social service organizations, courts, rights groups, policy organizations, and social support groups.
