The Connecticut College Funded Internship Program is part of a four-year career preparation program that helps students connect their liberal arts degree to professional opportunities and graduate study. All students have the opportunity to participate in a set of workshops to become eligible for a $3000 educational award to use during the summer of their junior year for an internship of their choice.
If you are interested in pursing post-graduate law options, we encourage you to follow the funded internship program. An internship gives you the ability to explore the industry and determine whether or not a specific field is right for you. While law schools do not require students to hold legal employment prior to applying, we recommend that students who are interested in pre-law evaluate the legal field through an internship.
A legal internship will give you access to corporate culture, a specific legal sector and professional connections that can assist you in deciding what areas of law you like and dislike. There are a number of areas in which Connecticut College students have found law-related internships including government agencies, non-profits, corporate legal departments and small law firms.
