The OPCD highly encourages students to take advantage of legal internships during their 1L and 2L summers. These positions provide tremendous exposure to the various areas of the practice of law and provide experience to ensure your marketability for a post-graduate position. Students should interview for internship opportunities through the fall and spring on-campus interview programs, as well as reviewing job postings on Symplicity. There will also be numerous opportunities advertised throughout the year. In addition to summer legal internships, there will be fall and spring internship opportunities available to 2L and 3L students.
Make an appointment with an OPCD counselor to discuss the internship opportunities available.
