Students enrolled in the Norton Rose Fulbright Corporate Counsel Externship are placed in the legal department of a business oriented organization on a part-time basis for one academic term. The program is composed of 7 credits in total. 5 credits are allocated to the experiential component (Law 379) and 2 credits are allocated to the academic component (Law 380).
The purpose of the Externship is to provide students with an opportunity to:
- Learn directly from experienced corporate counsel in a supportive educational environment;
- Apply theoretical concepts learned in the classroom to practical legal and business matters in a particular industry;
- Gain solicitor’s practice based experience in a supervised environment; and
- Develop a deeper understanding of professional ethics and professional responsibility in practice.
The Externship is designed for students to be at the organization for 16 hours per week. This is typically divided into 2 days per week, 8 hours per day. Therefore, students should plan their courses accordingly.
