Law schools that require internships?

Postby fisheatbananas » Tue Apr 07, 2015 2:40 am

I wasn't sure where to post this so sorry if this is the wrong place.

If you know any law schools where you must work an internship as a graduation requirement, could you please let me know? Especially if you can take a semester off class and only do the internship.
So far I only know the University of Washington (state) and Northeastern. Thank you!!

Why would you pick a school based on this criterion? Most schools offer credit for internships regardless of if they require it or not.

This. From what I understand, making it a requirement is (generally) a gimmick that lower ranked schools use to 'differentiate' themselves from their competition. It is not a substantive game-changer by any means and should not be a criterion for picking a school regardless of what your post-grad plans are.

I am a 0L but I already decided where to go to school and it's not based on an internship requirement at all. Actually I am asking because there is a possibility that my coworkers will look for a full time legal intern during the academic year, so it might help to target those schools. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask
