What type of internships should a pre-law student do?

#students #pre-law #undergraduate #law school

Thank you comment icon I work in a corporation, therefore I am not sure of the current practice of law firms. The Company I work for does have summer interns but they are law students. Many law firms have summer associate programs, but again, they are for law students. I recommend that you contact law firms in your area to find out if they have an internship program for undergraduates. If you do not find such programs I recommend that you seek a summer job or part time job of some type with a law firm which will give you a chance to find out more about the practice of law.

I recommend that you search the internet.  I did a brief search and it appears that there are colleges, businesses, public interest entities and government agencies that offer pre-law internships. Here is one site that had information:  https://www.indeed.com/q-Pre-Law-Intern-jobs.html .  If you have an interest in a particular area of law look for internships at places that are involved in that type of law.  Here is another site that has information about public interest internships:  https://studentaffairs.jhu.edu/preprofadvising/pre-law/advising/community/ .  Here is another site that appears to have a lot of good information on pre-law internships: https://lawstudents.findlaw.com/pre-law/pre-law-internships.html.

Hi Rachel,


This will depend on what you are interested in. If you aren't sure, then I would try to do a couple of internships. For example, if you aren't sure if you want to defend or prosecute, then I would try to do an internship at the DA's, as well as, for a law firm. Good luck!

This will depend on your areas of interest (i.e. corporate, litigation, criminal, etc.). If you aren't sure, then you may try to do a couple of internships. For example, do an internship in a corporate law firm and/or in a law firm that do ligiations, and depending on which you like most you can do more internships in that area.
