Study law in New York City and participate in an internship

In this rigorous prelaw program, you'll have an unparalleled opportunity to develop an accurate picture of the realities, rewards, and challenges of being a lawyer today.

You'll gain a solid academic foundation in U.S. law and will have a chance to supplement it with invaluable practical experience working in an internship.

During the first three weeks of the program, you'll be enrolled in the four-credit course The American Legal System, taught by renowned attorney C. Evan Stewart using the Socratic method practiced at most U.S. law schools.

During the second three weeks of the program, if you've received an internship placement*, you'll devote full days to your internship, which may be at a law firm or in the legal department of a corporation, government agency, or nonprofit organization.

A final exam will take place on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, from 5:00–8:00 p.m.

*If you do not receive a placement or opt not to participate in an internship, the dates of the program are June 5–23, 2023, with a final exam on June 28, 2023.
