Corporate Counsel Externship Program
UC Hastings’ Corporate Counsel Externship Program provides second and third-year students the opportunity to earn academic credit based on training in corporate counsel offices of for-profit and non-profit companies. The on-site learning helps students build their legal skills and knowledge so they can become practice-ready business attorneys. Students will learn how in-house attorneys collaborate and communicate with the company client, and how they incorporate the client’s unique mission, business, and industry context into their legal advice. Supervising attorneys guide, train, mentor, and provide substantive feedback to the student throughout the semester.

The Center for Business Law at UC Hastings was founded with the mission of bringing together leading scholars, business leaders, practitioners, regulators and students to engage in the study, teaching and practice of business law at UC Hastings. The Center aims to be the leading business law venue in San Francisco, one of the world’s great centers of commerce, finance and technology.
Gifts to CBL will be directed to support the mission of the Center, particularly to help fund new student oriented programs, events, and fellowship opportunities.
