Course Details

Practicum: High Tech

This practicum is for students in unpaid externships in the San Francisco Immersion Program. The practicum supplements the externship experience in a team setting where we discuss workplace experiences; read and discuss literature, articles, and current events relating to the practice of law in high technology settings; and engage guest speakers on a variety of topics related to the practice of law in entrepreneurial/high tech environments. By the end of the course, students have a better understanding of the variety of in-house legal structures in entrepreneurial/high tech companies, the common legal and professional/ethical issues that arise for in-house counsel in entrepreneurial/high tech companies, and the current and future sources of legal change in entrepreneurial/high tech companies. These outcomes will be achieved through a variety of formats, including: class meetings with readings, discussions and guest speakers; a weekly externship journal; and a final externship report.
