Target Corporation is seeking an extern from Mitchell Hamline during the Spring 2020 semester through its Diversity in Law Scholar’s program.
During the externship, the selected student would be placed in Target’s in-house legal department and gain exposure through observation and hands-on experience to a wide variety of law and business matters including business transactions, litigation management, advising and counseling business stakeholders, and research, writing, and analyzing key business and legal issues affecting Target, it’s employees, and customers.
Time Commitment: Students are expected to work up to 12-15 hours a week and must be able to work on-site at Target’s corporate offices in Minneapolis. Students must be able to provide their own reliable transportation to work.
Eligibility: This program is open to an upper level Mitchell Hamline student (part-time or full-time) who is in good academic standing, has demonstrated leadership qualities and service to the community. Preference will be given to a law student from an underrepresented group, including racial/ethnic background, sexual orientation, and disability.
Academic Credit & Scholarship: Upon successful completion of the externship at the end of the spring semester, the selected student would receive academic credit for the externship. Target will also provide the selected student with a scholarship (financial stipend) intended to defray a small portion of the student’s tuition expenses.
Externship Registration: This externship is being offered for 4 academic credits and the selected student may enroll in an Independent Externship or the Law and Business Externship as the student’s schedule permits. If the student is not able to allocate 4 credits to the externship, they may take it for a reduced number of credits (as few as 1 credit) as long as the student is able to complete the required number of work hours described above.
