Clinics & Externships

At the University of St. Thomas School of Law, we’re proud to be the #2 law school in the nation for practical training and the #30 law school in the nation for clinical training. We’ve grown our clinical offerings by nearly 300% since 2010, empowering a majority of our students to enroll in at least one live-client clinical course, and our award-winning Mentor Externship Program continues to be ranked #1 in the nation.

Our practical training curriculum is further enhanced by robust externship and practicum offerings, which provide students with relevant, practice-ready legal experience. As a student here, you can explore the judiciary, the public sector, the intersection of law and business, and compliance through externship opportunities, or delve deeply into a variety of topics in law through intensive practicum courses.
