As a small but public company, the extern ship will provide a wide breadth of projects related to:

  1. Reviewing and drafting contracts
  2. Researching healthcare and corporate law issues as needed
  3. Assisting with Nasdaq OMX compliance
  4. Drafting and reviewing internal policies
  5. Assisting with Corporate Governance activities

This externship would be perfect for someone who is interested in learning how a corporate legal department works as well as anyone interested in international pharmaceuticals.

It would be helpful (but not required) if the student had taken Business Organizations, Health Law, Intellectual Property or other classes that touch on aspects of corporate law. Students do not need to be certified under the student practice rules for this externship.
