Georgia Tech’s Office of Legal Affairs will sponsor an internship for
two students in the Fall 2008 semester. This is a great opportunity to
work on real legal matters under the supervision of Georgia Tech’s
attorneys. Internship for Credit
A. Application Process
(1) Two (2) internship positions for the Fall 2008 semester are
available in OLA. Students who wish to apply for an OLA internship
should email their cover letter and resume to Attorney Yolonda Cameron
<firstname.lastname@example.org> by 5:00 pm, March 28, 2008. The
cover letter should be addressed to Randy Nordin, Chief Legal Advisor,
Office of Legal Affairs. Please note: No cover letters and resumes will
be accepted after the deadline listed above. Incomplete application
packages will not be accepted.
(2) In your cover letter, indicate: why you are interested in the
position; any prior exposure to legal subject matter (coursework, jobs,
pre-law activities, etc.); any areas of law that are of particular
interest to you; and whether you would like to take the internship on a
pass-fail or letter-grade basis (if you wish to count the internship
toward a Pre-Law Certificate or any minor, the course must be taken for
a letter grade and you must earn at least a C).
(3) One (1) Letter of Recommendation from a Georgia Tech Professor
who is familiar with your work must be submitted in support of your
application. The letter of recommendation should address your ability to
analyze and apply information and to communicate effectively, with an
emphasis on your reading comprehension and writing skills. The
professor also must be willing to talk with OLA about your
qualifications for the OLA internship. The letter of recommendation
should be sent by U.S. postal service directly by your recommender to:
Georgia Institute of Technology, Office of Legal Affairs, 400 Tenth
Street, Suite 282, Atlanta, GA 30332-0495, Attn: Yolonda Cameron. The
letter of recommendation must be postmarked not later than
March 28, 2008.
(4) A member of the OLA will contact you if they wish to invite you
for an interview. Interviews will be conducted between April 7 and
April 11, 2008, if possible, and you will be notified by OLA soon
thereafter about whether they will offer you an internship position. If
you are selected for the internship, you will register for it during
Phase II registration.
B. Internship Pre-requisites
(1) Students who have taken the one-credit Public Policy course PUBP
4811 Special Topics: Legal Research and Writing or who have taken PUBP
3610 Pre-Law Seminar may apply for the OLA internship positions. If you
