The Bridge is a blueprint for students to help in obtaining the legal internship that is best for them and using that experience to take control of their career. The Bridge is rooted in extensive research and incorporates principles from various disciplines including human resources consulting, recruitment and relationship–building, professional development, leadership training, experiential learning, behavioral, cognitive and organizational psychology, and law practice management. These principles are applied to real situations that arise during internships to provide color, context, foreshadow what to expect, and to resonate with the reader. The Bridge covers every angle, is endorsed by legal professionals of all experience levels and sectors and, perhaps most importantly, addresses the issues that apply to legal interns today. It is relevant, comprehensive and practical. Following the guidance set forth in The Bridge will optimize your students’ internship experience.
