Practice Makes Perfect
Experiential education is at the heart of our curriculum with rich, diverse and varied opportunities:
An Internship on Steroids: Co-op
Through our Co-op Program, students earn academic credit for working alongside practitioners from more than 100 law firms, corporate offices, government agencies, courts and public-interest law organizations. There, they draft documents, conduct research, take part in meetings and depositions, interview witnesses and gain other great experience in the field.
Representing Clients: Clinics
Our Clinical Program allows students to work with attorneys from Philadelphia's premiere public-interest law organizations and represent clients in court, administrative hearings or community meetings. Our in-house Appellate Litigation Clinic gives students an opportunity to represent clients in matters that are under appeal. And through our in-house Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, students provide legal assistance to the owners of startup businesses.
Serving the Public Good: Pro Bono Service
All students spend time working with under-represented members of the community to gain additional legal experience while helping to put justice within reach for people who really need it. Many students enjoy the work so much that they vastly exceed the required 50 hours of service.
