Work Projects & Supervision

Interns are available to handle legal, business or operational projects that are appropriate for the intern’s experience and skill sets. Our students have diverse backgrounds and IFLP provides you with a pre-screened pool of candidates having the skills, experience and interests most relevant to you. We offer options for both “traditional” and “supervised” internships to help ensure that your projects exceed expectations for both you and the interns.

Traditional Internships

In a Traditional Internship, the employer is responsible for the duties ordinarily associated with managing the intern, including:

  • hiring, on-boarding, and managing the intern; 
  • selecting projects and supervising activity; and
  • paying the intern.

This option is best for employers with infrastructure for hiring and managing interns.


Supervised Internships

In a Supervised Internship, an IFLP partner assume many of the duties ordinarily associated with managing interns, including: 

  • hiring, on-boarding, and managing the intern; 
  • working with employer to select appropriate projects; and
  • managing projects to completion.

For these services, the IFLP partner charges a small-mark up to cover supervision. This option is best for employers that are looking to avoid the burden and cost of hiring and supervising interns.
