Internships offer a great opportunity to experience the legal field and find out if legal work is something you would enjoy. While legal internships are neither expected nor the norm, a legal internship or long-term shadowing opportunity affords pre-law students a better idea of whether a career in law is the right path for you. Follow the Piper Center’s guide on internships for more information.
When looking for an internship, be sure to consider St. Olaf’s Summer Undergraduate Legal Scholars Program. Also, use our database of experiential opportunities for pre-law students to find a variety of firms, organizations, and businesses that might work with you to set up an internship.
