Off-Campus Opportunities

Students in Seton Hall Law School's J.D. program have opportunities to complement their legal education by participating in some of our off-campus programs.   Available to all matriculated J.D. students, these programs typically allow students to earn credits and can provide a particularly interesting experience for students interested in health, pharmaceutical, and intellectual property law.

The J.D. Externship program allows health law students, in particular, to gain valuable work experience for a nonprofit organization while earning credits toward the concentration.  Students interested in intellectual property law or entertainment law should contact the Office of Career Services at or at the phone number 973-642-8746 for further information on intellectual property externships.  Those interested in the intellectual property law concentration or in taking some intellectual property courses find the study abroad program in Ireland to be a great way to gain international experience and learn about global intellectual property issues.  The study abroad program is available to both M.S.J. and J.D. students.

In addition, J.D. students concentrating in health law or intellectual property law may participate in select paid internships (without credit) at pharmaceutical or medical device companies.  Others may elect to clerk for a judge (for credit). Opportunities may be found through the Office of Career Services.

Externship Programs

Seton Hall Law School's externship program enables J.D. students to apply their knowledge, gain valuable legal experience in a nonprofit setting, and provide in-depth learning experiences for those seeking the health law concentration. The externships also provide students with unparalleled opportunities to meet health care attorneys and providers who become a bridge to their career in health law.

Students pursuing the concentration are encouraged to pursue an externship; however, the externship is not a requirement for obtaining the concentration. For more information about externship opportunities, please contact the Office of Career Services at or at the phone number 973-642-8746.
