Washtenaw County/EMU Legal Resource Center
Internship Experience at the Legal Resource Center
Paralegal Program students are given the amazing and unique opportunity to work in the Washtenaw County-EMU Legal Resource Center located in the Washtenaw County Courthouse on Main Street in Ann Arbor.
Opened in 2004, the Legal Resource Center is a nationally recognized collaborative effort between Washtenaw County and Eastern Michigan University. This internship is a highlight of the Paralegal Program.
The Legal Resource Center is staffed by Paralegal Program students and a licensed attorney who serves as the Site Supervisor. The internship experience allows students to gain “hands on” paralegal experience while helping the community.
In 2015, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching selected EMU to receive its Community Engagement Classification. This classification recognized EMU’s involvement in the community as a means of enhancing learning. The Legal Resource Center was one of the EMU programs specifically mentioned by the Carnegie Foundation as an example of outstanding community programs.
