Are you a junior or senior? Would you like to work in the Alabama State Legislature in Montgomery next Spring? See Ms. Norman’s email below, and the attachments.
Because our Legislature meets for less than half the year, YOUR ONLY OPPORTUNITY to do a legislative internship is during the SPRING term.
The Alabama Law Institute legislative internship is the best opportunity to do a meaningful state legislative internship. If you are accepted for this program, ALI handles your work placement, and plans weekly extra-curricular opportunities to meet important state policymakers.
***Note that doing this internship requires being in Montgomery for most of the Spring semester. If accepted for this program, I would be willing to work with you to provide 3-6 hours of PSC 399 credit for your internship, but if you are a student who needs to be enrolled full-time for the Spring it is up to YOU to figure out how to get the rest of your course credits to add up to a full-time load. Options might include seeking internship credits from other departments besides PSC, taking online courses at UA, or taking courses at a Montgomery-area college that will transfer back to UA.

Applications for Summer 2019 will open in January 2019.
“Some of these entities offer both placement in internship positions AND academic credit from non-UA institutions. In many cases, that credit may be transferable to UA credit (although it would not count as being ‘in residence.”) Some of these entities are just offering the internship positions themselves. In such cases, students might be able to arrange UA (in-residence) credit through our PSC 399; contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Databases for Finding Internships:
A&S Experiential Learning Services : “This is an office within the College of Arts and Sciences that assists students who seek internships and other forms of experiential education (such as assisting faculty members with research, performing community service, participating in education abroad, etc.) While they do not actually place students in internships themselves, they work with students to identify opportunities and assist with applications. In addition, this office will guide students through the process of obtaining academic credit and finalizing logistical issues such as housing and travel. They will also help students to identify useful campus services to assist with planning.
