You have a unique set of skills, passions and goals. So why follow a predetermined path through law school?
At Northeastern, you create your own path by choosing specific co-ops, electives and activities that help you explore your interests and reach your goals. For some students, that means a single-minded pursuit of a particular type of law. For others, it means a broad-based exploration that takes them to several different countries and legal fields.
"When I tell people on job interviews about co-op, they say 'I wish my law school had a program like that!'" — Okechi Ogbuokiri ’10“I’ve wanted to be a lawyer since sixth grade, but I followed my own path to law school, majoring in business and sociology instead of English and poli sci. At NUSL, I’ve continued to follow my own path. Working with my faculty mentor, i quickly decided employment law offered the right balance of business focus and client interaction for me. Then I chose my co-ops accordingly. When I was interviewing for postgrad jobs, the hiring attorneys were floored by what I'd already done on my co-ops. I’ve worked for a judge, a major law firm and an important labor union. I’ll be able to hit the ground running when grads of other law schools are still trying to figure out how to file a brief.”
