Gaining confidence through Allard Law’s legal clinics and externships

The prospect of making the jump from the classroom to the law office – or the courtroom – can be daunting.

Allard Law’s clinic and externship programs give law students the chance to apply what they’ve learned and gain new professional skills in a supportive environment, all before graduation and before beginning articling.

In a Q & A with Peter Allard School of Law, two current students – and a new grad –spoke about what they took away from their time at three of the Faculty’s Clinic and Externships programs: Rise Women’s Legal Clinic, the International Justice and Human Rights Clinic, and the Corporate Counsel Externship program.
