Internship Opportunities at Levatino|Pace
Levatino|Pace does occasionally offer internship opportunities for law school students. These internships are highly supervised, and tailored to the individual learner-trainee.
Interns at L|P can expect to be involved with developing concrete and clearly-defined learning objectives at the beginning of their program. The supervising attorney and the intern will meet formally to develop these learning objectives together and weekly meetings will occur to monitor progress. These learning objectives will be concise and measurable. This ensures both parties envision the same experience and assists the evaluation process.
Interns can expect both formal and informal evaluations. An internship can only be a true learning experience if constructive feedback is provided. Evaluations will focus on the interns’ learning objectives that were identified at the start of the internship. Attorney supervisors will take time to evaluate both a students positive accomplishments and areas for improvement. If an intern was unable to meet their learning objectives, suggestions for improvement will be given.
We believe that effective supervision, meaningful and varied assignments, and routine feedback will provide our interns with a unique opportunity that can provide relevant on-the-job training that will assist them with their future career search. All interns will be required to sign confidentiality agreements and are expected to maintain professional office protocols.
