Our office’s close relationship with the Maurer and McKinney Schools of Law has facilitated the development of robust law fellowship and legal internship programs. Aspiring and new lawyers work with seasoned attorneys in our office to learn substantively about the practice of law in a university environment. Our legal interns and fellows receive hands-on training, experience, and mentoring that translate into meaningful post-program employment opportunities.
Our law fellow program provides invaluable legal development opportunities for new graduates from both the Maurer and McKinney Schools of Law.
In addition to handling their own projects, our law fellows have the opportunity to work directly with other attorneys in our office in handling a broad range of legal issues. Some of those issues are: academic and student affairs, athletics, contracts, copyright and intellectual property, data privacy and security, disabilities and disability-related accommodations, free speech, international programs, immigration, and labor and employment matters. Additionally, our law fellows assist in coordinating the University’s responses to subpoenas and open records requests, as well as draft responses to complaints in connection with various state and federal agencies.
