Real Experience: The Co-op Program

The Co-Op Program: A Guaranteed Internship for Law Students

Don't Just Talk About The Law

Our Co-op Program gives you a semester or academic year-long opportunity to earn course credit for working alongside practitioners at one of 200 law firms, corporate offices, government agencies, courts and public interest law organizations. You’ll gain 20 to 40 hours of experience each week, providing an intensive exposure to legal practice and a powerful opportunity to build skills and demonstrate your abilities.

Besides gaining experience in legal practice, a co-op placement helps you forge relationships with some of the best professionals in the business. There's no better way to make connections and open doors.

Experiential Education At Its Best

More than 100 Years of Experience

Our law school may be young, but we are backed by Drexel University's 100+ years of experience crafting real-world learning experiences through the co-op program.

Unlimited Potential

Our co-op program is flexible. While most of our students enroll in at least one semester- or year-long co-op, some complete two placements. Some decide to take their experience abroad or out of state. It's your call. We will be here to help you make the decisions.

Practice Makes Perfect

Although co-op provides a real-world legal education like none other, our students' experiential immersion does not stop there. You can continue your experiential training with our clinical or pro bono programs.

Build Your Network

Besides actually learning how to practice law from the best in the business, co-op provides you with the opportunity to forge relationships with some of the best legal professionals in Philadelphia and other cities. There's no better way to make connections and open doors.

See For Yourself

Don't just take our word for it, explore the program to see for yourself.
