After the first year of law school, Corporate Law Fellows and other law students interested in business and corporate law are given the opportunity to participate in externships. Students have opportunities to gain experience and earn academic credit by working in the legal departments of some of Cincinnati’s leading corporations. The externship program provides invaluable hands-on training for the student. Placements are based on availability and take into consideration the student’s interests and geographic preferences.

Such services include assistance and counseling on entity selection and formation; regulatory compliance and licensing; trademark and copyright protection; lease review and negotiation; contract preparation, review, and negotiation; as well as any other legal issues confronting a small business.
