Educational ObjectivesStudents serve a semester-long internship with either the Consumer Protection Division of the Iowa Attorney General's Office or the Regulatory Counsel’s Office of the Iowa Credit Union League. Students will gain experience and insight as to the state and federal compliance laws impacting credit unions, how credit unions manage consumer compliance requirements (and work with third party consultants to do so), and where the relevant federal agency is focusing in the future relative to consumer regulation of financial institutions. Prerequisites for the course include permission by faculty supervisor and approval by the field supervisor in the AG's or Iowa Credit Union League’s office.
Faculty Supervisor Professor Jonathan Rosenbloom will supervise this internship. Interns must meet with the supervising professor at least twice during the internship and must submit an evaluation of the internship, copies of all significant written work product, and a brief paper analyzing a legal issue encountered during the internship to the supervising professor at the end of the internship.
