Queen’s Law offers upper-year students the opportunity to complete unpaid internships for three academic credits with federal government offices through Department of Justice Legal Services. Each intern is expected to work approximately 84-100 hours during the term. The hours and days of work are negotiated with the department, but interns are generally expected to spend one full business day each week in the Ottawa office. Although some additional research may be conducted from Kingston, you must be able to commit to weekly travel to Ottawa. Upon completion of the internship, the faculty will provide a maximum stipend of $1000 to help offset the costs of commuting to Ottawa. 

In addition to the internships arranged by Queen's Law, individual students may make their own arrangements with a federal government department that will qualify as an internship for credit. Such a placement would have to be approved by the Faculty prior to the start date. Internships for credit are only possible during the academic year. If you are interested in arranging your own internship, please contact the Director of Career Development before proceeding.
