Experience What You Learn
At Clarkson, we know that hands-on experience is the best way to learn any job. That's why we promote student opportunities to work in law offices. As a Pre-Law student, you work with local lawyers in "real-world" situations. Third year students can arrange a semester of co-op experience through Clarkson's Career Center. We also arrange internships for Pre-Law students with state and federal legislatures. Clarkson's reputation for hardworking, intelligent graduates makes students prime candidates for pre-degree employment, especially summer positions.
An agreement between Clarkson and Franklin Pierce Law Center benefits students interested in specializing in intellectual property law. The center, based in Concord, New Hampshire, is internationally known for producing specialists in patent law and other intellectual property fields. If you are admitted to Clarkson, you can also receive a provisional admission to Franklin Pierce Law Center.
