Internships? Summer or otherwise.
« on: December 25, 2004, 02:44:13 AM »
Hi all. I was wondering if anybody knew of internships that are open to students at distance learning law schools.  I suppose summer internships are an option, but because distance learning programs continue through the summer to meet the 48 week requirement, one would have to keep studying during the internship.  Any suggestions?

Try asking your school.  Or find some alumni on Martindale-Hubbell and ask them.  Or just apply to firms and organizations in the states where your school is accredited and see what happens.

Or you might try local attorneys; some sole practioners might appreciate some free help!!

Thanks for the tip, Coregram.

If you need inspiration, take a look at a list of DL trained lawyers I am compiling:

They might be willing to help you out if they can.

My classes start next week, not this week, so I don't have my user name and password to Lexis yet.

If I'm no threat to you, there's no need to come after me for every post.  I was thanking someone for good information because I DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING. 

 ;D

I must have touched a nerve.  Let's just agree to disagree and move on.
