• Internships

    Students completing the double major are required to complete an appropriate internship, which they choose in consultation with their academic program advisor. Students can intern with lawyers; judges; a legal clinic at Mitchell Hamline’s law school; the courts; the state legislature; federal, state, or local government agencies; as well as at a variety of nonprofit organizations focused on public policy, domestic violence, or support for women or children. Students who wish to complete the paralegal certificate can intern in many of the same environments, but must perform paralegal work. Internships must be approved by the chairs of both legal studies and women’s studies prior to registering for the internship.
