Internship Programs for New England Law Students

New England Law | Boston offers two distinct judicial internship opportunities that students can take advantage of while still in law school.  Many of our students come to their postgraduate clerkships having already served with a judge, and they know what judges expect and are prepared from day one.  In addition, judges seeking clerks can get references for our students directly from other judges or government officials who have supervised their legal internships.
