Internships & Clinics
The Schulich School of Law offers funding for a number of paid summer internships in many different types of organizations in Canada and around the world: international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, businesses, governments, and charities are just a few examples. These work placements are a great way for students to explore potential career paths, gain experience, apply legal knowledge in the workplace and make valuable connections.
Dalhousie Legal Aid Service
The Dalhousie Legal Aid Service has been in operation since 1970. It's the oldest clinical law program in Canada and the only community law clinic in Nova Scotia. Third-year law students can participate in an internship for credit at the Dal Legal Aid clinic, getting real-life experience with community outreach, education, organizing, lobbying, and test case litigation to combat injustices affecting persons with low incomes in Nova Scotia.
