Clinics and Internships
Stetson Law offers students more than 450 clinic, internship and externship opportunities annually. Offering approximately 35 clinic and internship courses at more than 60 hosting organizations, Stetson University College of Law joins a handful of other law schools across the country who guarantee that every student can participate in a clinic or internship course during law school. While this does not mean that every student is guaranteed his or her first choice of courses, it does mean that any student who has the prerequisites can participate in a clinical course involving real practice.
Programs are designed to enhance classroom-based learning and give students opportunities to gain valuable, real-world experience while working closely with Stetson faculty. These experiences allow students to observe and participate in the application of substantive law, and find solutions to problems that confront attorneys on a daily basis.

"The most beneficial aspect of the clinic was having attorneys in the office who were patient and willing to teach me, and having a supervising attorney who was there to correct me, encourage me and show me how to be a better advocate."
