Pro Bono Programs, Externships, and Clinics  

Seton Hall offers students multiple opportunities to develop their practical skills and gain hands-on experience by working in real lawyering contexts.

Students participating in Seton Hall Law’s award-winning Pro Bono Service Program gain exposure to on-the-ground lawyering and can make a difference in someone’s life starting as early as their first year. The program allows students to volunteer at a nonprofit organization for a semester based on their area of interest in a diverse range of not for profit organizations including community development, criminal justice, mental health, and youth programs.

Through the Center for Social Justice (CSJ) clinical program, upper-class students move from the classroom to the real-world as they represent clients and handle cases from start to finish. Each of the clinics focuses on a particular area of the law, but all share the commitment of promoting social justice by working on behalf of the underrepresented.
