The pre-law internship provides an opportunity for students considering law school to work in legal office, to observe what lawyers actually do in their daily activities, and to perform a variety of tasks that will help them determine if they have the desire, capabilities and temperament that it takes to be a lawyer. An internship is also an excellent opportunity for a student in interested in pursuing a career in the law to establish contacts early on with professionals in the legal community.
Because Peoria is a regional center for legal and judiciary services, students have numerous opportunities to work for law firms, or intern in for government agencies or public interest groups. Bradley students also have the opportunity to intern in other parts of the region and the country, such as Chicago, Springfield and Washington D.C.
Opportunities available to current students are listed with the Smith Career Center. Both current and prospective students are encouraged to contact the Director of the Pre-Law Center with any questions.
