The Relevance of Internships/Externships

AN ODD INQUIRY HERE, BUT I MIGHT AS WELL GIVE A SHOT

Let's say I only want to obtain a JD with no intention of practicing law...

In that case, does anyone's law school mandate some sort of internship/externship, clerking, etc? 

Is it possible to ONLY take classes for the credits for the JD, without even belonging to any student organization or doing anything else?
