Touro Law Center and the New York State Bar Association are partnering in a new internship opportunity for our students. The Real Property Law Section of the NYSBA is actively soliciting host law firms to serve as mentors for students from Touro and other law schools. The law school will solicit resumes from interested students and forward them to the host firms for consideration.
Professor Lewis Silverman, Director of Externship Programs at Touro, commented: “Primarily because of our suburban setting, many of our students have a keen interest in pursuing opportunities in real estate, both residential and commercial. We think it is exciting that the New York State Bar Association has recognized the student interest and is actively seeking attorneys from the practicing bar to serve as mentors for law students. Our incoming dean, Patricia Salkin, also has a special expertise in real property law, and I am sure that this partnership will serve our students well, both in their educational endeavors and in future employment opportunities.”
Students interested in any of these positions should submit their resumes to the Career Services Office by August 27th for the fall semester and November 1st for the Spring semester. The positions will be eligible for credit either in the Civil Practice Externship for the Spring, 2013 semester, or immediately as an Independent Externship in conjunction with a substantive law course.
