If you plan to practice in a particular area of the law, it is critically important to gain as much practical experience and training in this area as possible. The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University offers students a variety of practical training opportunities, including participation in clinics, externships and pro bono activities.
There are also a considerable number of outside organizations, such as bar associations, that offer excellent training programs to law students and practicing attorneys.
Below is a list of some training programs that may be relevant to you. This list is not exhaustive, and we encourage you to be proactive in identifying and researching additional training programs.
