Clinics and Externships

Practical experience is a cornerstone of a New England Law | Boston education. We guarantee at least one clinical or externship experience during your law school career, and many students take more, given the wide spectrum of choices ranging from international externships to judicial internships. We offer multiple clinics and externships to help you develop your practical legal skills.
