get involved: law schools

give your graduates every chance to succeed

 
 
 

The Institute for the Future of Law Practice partners with law schools across the globe to build better lawyers and facilitate positive employment outcomes for their students. IFLP complements traditional legal education with curriculum that addresses the new requirements of modern legal practice.

Law students who are admitted to the IFLP program participate in an Intensive hands-on training boot camp that focuses on disciplines not generally taught in law school. Following the bootcamp, IFLP provides students with paid internships that allow them to reinforce the skills they learned, gain practical experience, and build a network, all which improve post-graduation employment outcomes. Internship employers cover a wide range of practice settings, including corporate legal departments, law firms and legal service providers, legal tech companies, and public service organizations.

How does it work?

In 2018 five law schools offered the IFLP program to students. For 2019, we’ve expanded to seventeen law schools in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. We want to bring the IFLP curriculum and internship program to all law schools that want it.

Partner law schools work with IFLP to promote the opportunity to their students and screen appropriate candidates. Schools must make a good faith effort to provide students with academic credit for some or all of the IFLP program (the boot camp course and 7-month field placement). One faculty member from each school is appointed to serve as liaison to IFLP and participate in the boot camp.
