Internships and Externships

Legislative Process Simulation and Externships

Through classroom simulations and externships, students are divided into working groups and are required to research legislation topics identified by members of the legislature and Professor Wolf. They must then draft bills, prepare testimony, and present their bills before a simulated committee of the Massachusetts legislature. The students also work directly with legislative members.

Siena College Summer Internship Program

Each summer, the School of Law hosts students from Siena College in Loudonville, NY, which sponsors a unique program at three American law schools for its best-qualified students interested in a career in the law. Through this program, sponsored by the Institute with the cooperation of Representative Gale Candaras '82 (D-Wilbraham), students spend eight weeks at the School of Law engaged in a legislative project, undertaking legal research, field interviews, and visits to the Legislature in Boston.
