Real Experience: The Co-op Program

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

This Is Not the Usual Internship

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. It may appear similar to a standard internship opportunity, but it is unique in many ways:

  • Guaranteed placements for all law students.
  • A semester or academic year-long opportunity for course credit, satisfying some of your graduation requirements. 
  • Work a minimum of 20 hours per week up to 40 hours per week.
  • More than 200 co-op partners in law firms, corporate offices, government agencies, courts and public interest law organizations.
  • Placements are aligned specifically with students’ areas of interest. If there isn’t a suitable partner, we will work with you to find one so you can get the right experience.
  • Some decide to take their experience abroad or out of state.
  • Our law faculty train co-op supervisors and monitor each student’s placement to ensure that the experience is meaningful.

In addition to helping you gain 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.
