Students are encouraged to use the public service program as a way to explore their interests, gain hands-on experience, and build their resumes.


Externships

The School of Law offers students the opportunity to receive academic credit while gaining valuable experience through the Public Interest and Judicial Externship Programs.


Clinical Programs

Students receive academic credit for participation in one of the school's three clinical programs: the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Mediation Clinic, and the Immigration Clinic.
