Remote Legal Internships

Why Complete a Remote Legal Opportunity?

As a direct result of the burgeoning business and entrepreneurship scene in Asia, the need for domestic and international law has risen and increased the presence of global firms engaged in all aspects of the legal landscape. The legal career field placements allow undergraduates the unique opportunity to work with individual lawyers and partners to support their casework and other needs of assistance. Public policy placements also have a rich presence in many of our locations allowing political science, criminal justice, and international relations students to gain industry exposure.

Students who are looking to bolster their law school applications may consider enrolling in a remote legal internship. The opportunity to support a law firm or other legal entity will provide the first hand perspective into the vast complexities and challenges of the legal field.
