School of Law
Opportunities to build your professional expertise begin as soon as you step through the door of our law center. Professional development is woven through our JD curriculum, preparing you for the many dimensions of actual practice — and the complex situations faced by your future clients.
To practice law, first you have to practice
You will learn early how attorneys and judges process the challenges of day-to-day practice through hands-on exercises, including Gateway to Practice, an immersive two-day experience in which 1L students work in mock law firms alongside local practicing attorneys. As a 2L student, you can experience real-world practice through work in our legal clinics, consulting and even representing clients who otherwise may not be able to afford an attorney. You’ll also have your pick of more than 350 externship field sites.
Our career development office, staffed by lawyers with decades of experience, provides a range of counseling services. This includes resume and cover letter reviews, practice interviews and networking opportunities with area lawyers and fellow students. You’ll also benefit from our extensive network of more than 6,000 alumni who practice in Connecticut and beyond.
