When it comes to giving students the opportunity to learn by doing, there’s simply no place like Northeastern. Our signature Cooperative Legal Education Program guarantees you a year of full-time work experience. No other law school program comes close — indeed, The National Jurist ranks Northeastern as the #1 law school for practical training.
While other law schools might give students the chance to work over the summer or experience a part-time internship or externship, only Northeastern integrates four quarters of full-time employment into its curriculum, giving you four opportunities to:
- Collaborate full time with working lawyers, contributing to the resolution of actual cases for real clients
- Make an impact in a professional setting just about anywhere in the world, from New York to South Africa
- Try out a variety of work environments and explore diverse areas of the law in depth
The benefits of co-op extend far beyond graduating with an impressive resumé. You and your peers will bring lessons learned on co-op into the classroom, creating a vibrant intellectual exchange that builds with each new experience. You may end up accepting a full-time position with one of your co-op employers, as a significant number of our graduates do. Most important, you’ll have the experience to know exactly where you want to go in your career and the confidence and credentials to get there.
