Experiential Opportunities

Coastal Law students completed 39,000 hours of pro bono work in 2012. Learn more about all of our pro bono opportunities.

Experiential learning – hands-on legal skills training outside of the classroom – is the most marketable attribute a law school graduate can possess. These opportunities provide skills and knowledge which can immediately add value to a hiring firm or legal organization as well as an appreciation for the ethical demands of the legal profession.

Currently, Coastal Law offers multiple in-house legal clinics in addition to judicial and non-judicial externships across the country, and various pro bono opportunities. We also offer unique programs like our skills labs where students work more closely on a pro bono case with a licensed attorney, the Public Interest Research Bureau where students can volunteer to provide research service to lawyers working in public interest and poverty law, and the Shadow Program where students observe the daily work of state and federal attorneys.
