NC Public Policy Integrated Externship

This integrated externship is associated with the Legislation and Statutory Interpretation course. It will be highly interactive and be organized around several case studies involving current legal and ethical issues facing North Carolina state government. Students will assume the roles of different players in the political process and be challenged to advocate for various positions depending on the role to which they are assigned. Through these simulations, the students will not only be pushed to develop their strategic thinking, oral advocacy and legislative and/or administrative drafting skills, but will experience firsthand the difficulty of crafting policy solutions in a democracy. Externship placements will be in the North Carolina General Assembly and in the administrative branch. The course is expected to meet every other week for two hours.


Please note that course organization and content may vary substantially from semester to semester and descriptions are not necessarily professor specific. Please contact the instructor directly if you have particular course-related questions.
