Career

Political Science Teaching Assistant

The Political Science Department solicits law students to be T.A.s through e-mail. Consider applying for classes related to international law.

Immigration Law is a prerequisite for both Clinics, but it may also be taken concurrently.  This does not fulfill the upper-level ethics requirement.

Summer internships are one of the best way to get direct international experience.  Brainstorm what type of international career you want and try to find something that will help you work towards that goal.
