Student Legal Services is dedicated to the personal and professional development of University of Florida students. It is our goal to provide students with innovative learning experiences beyond the classroom and help prepare them to assume roles of leadership, involvement and service in a global community.
The following undergraduate opportunities are available through Student Legal Services:
Throughout the year, Student Legal Services will have various research projects available. Please check with our office towards the end of each semester (approximately one month prior to the start of the Registration period for classes) to inquire about available internships.
Reception Desk Volunteer
The students assist the two assistants with general office duties such as answering phones, checking in clients, copying and filing. We have limited space in the office and can only offer a small number of volunteer positions each semester. You can complete and submit the Student Volunteer Application. We keep the applications on file and contact interested students for interviews when we have openings.
Pre-Law Shadow Program
Pre-law students can meet with an attorney to discuss going to law school and a career in the legal profession as well as make arrangements to observe the daily operation of the office and to sit in on client consultations. We would require the pre-law students to sign a confidentiality form whereby the student agrees to keep the clients’ confidences. The clients will also have to agree to the observation.
Interested students should call our office at (352) 392-5297 to schedule an appointment to meet with an attorney. Please let the front desk know the appointment is for the shadow program.
