Policy on Academic-Year Employment

Students may not accept employment or internships that interfere with the significant obligations of the full-time study of law. First-year students are advised not to seek employment. No student who is enrolled full-time should accept employment that exceeds 20 hours per week. Moreover, regular and punctual class attendance is required of all students in all classes. An internship is never a valid excuse for class absence.
