PAR 199 - Paralegal Internship


The internship program provides a supervised practicum experience in law. Interns will spend 6 hours per week at their assigned internship position and attend a weekly one-hour seminar at the college. Weekly classes will review law office procedures, employability skills, ethical issues in the legal workplace, and selected topics in law. Students may be assigned to criminal or civil areas of law. All interns will be supervised by attorneys and will be responsible for performing work traditionally assigned to paralegals such as researching state and federal law (statutes, regulations and cases), responding to client requests for information, and coordinating responses to public agencies and private law firms. Internship opportunities exist within the MCC Law Center, the district courts, and law offices approved by the program director. This course is strongly recommended for all students planning to seek paralegal employment upon graduation.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of PAR 110.
Note(s): This is a Legal Specialty course.
