Interested in a Spring 2018 externship with the Law Department at University Hospitals? This site uses an earlier application process than most of our externship sites and the time to apply is now.

The Law Department offers interns the opportunity become directly involved with the broad range of legal matters that affect University Hospitals Health System, Inc. The Law Department’s “small law firm” environment enables an extern to experience a wide range of topics, including, general corporate practice, tax and nonprofit issues, employment law, real estate, health care regulatory matters (e.g. Stark law, Anti-kickback, EMTALA, and HIPAA), hospital policy, patient care issues, and corporate governance.

An extern, with appropriate supervision, will be expected to be able to conduct research projects, draft memoranda, draft correspondence, review agreements and otherwise assist Law Department as needed. The successful applicant will be expected to work with all department lawyers, and will report to the Vice President & Deputy General Counsel for Corporate Legal Services. Interns will also have the opportunity to work and meet with the Chief Legal Officer. Although externs will work primarily on transactional matters, there is opportunity for litigation and mediation experience.
