Internship Site Purpose:
To enlist students in the task of corpus development relevant to constitutional and statutory interpretation in the law, while educating them as young scholars with the potential to incorporate the concepts and methods of corpus linguistics into their future careers.
The Law & Corpus Linguistics (LCL) Internship is a rare opportunity for students to contribute to a project that has been described as revolutionary to legal interpretation. Interns will find a chance to obtain the skills and knowledge needed to be at the forefront of this new initiative in the law. Using a classroom model and following a scheduled curriculum, an intern’s experience will consist of work in three areas: annotation of source document metadata, engagement with legal and academic research, and exposure to rudimentary corpus linguistics.
