Outside the Classroom
Gain practical experience with an internship
We strongly encourage you to pursue internship opportunities during your time at Mercer University. Internships provide you with practical experiences connected to the curriculum you are learning in the classroom. You can also form strong, lasting relationships with industry professionals in a career path you are interested in pursuing, sometimes opening up job opportunities after graduation. Many Law and Public Policy majors choose to complete internships with:
- Elected officials
- Governmental agencies
- Law firms
- Nonprofit organizations
You can receive academic credit from completing your internship if you meet the following requirements:
- Complete nine on-site hours per week
- Engage in regular discussions with a Mercer faculty member
- Complete a written reflection on the legal, policy, and ethical questions raised by your internship experience.
For more information on internship opportunities, contact Law and Public Policy Director Dr. Lori A. Johnson.
