At what point in your career should you take law school internships off your resume?

As soon as you've convinced a full time employer you actually did the things you say you did at your internship

Ehh, IDK. I can think of situations you'd leave it for longer. E.g., I did a stint on the hill, and I would def leave that on for later jobs to sign party ID/policy experience after doing a clerkship/litigation.

Yeah, I think it depends on the internship and and what other experience you have and where you're applying and space on your resume and so on. (By space I mean I doubt I'd ever go to a second page to get my law school internships in there, but since I could fit them on the first page I have them on there. Two are definitely pertinent to my current practice area; the others will drop off sooner.)
