At the University of St. Thomas, we’re proud of our ranking as the #1 law school in the nation for practical training. We’ve grown our clinical offerings by nearly 300% since 2010, empowering a majority of our students to enroll in at least one clinical course, and we offer an award-winning Mentor Externship Program.

Our practical training curriculum is further enhanced by robust externship and practicum offerings, which provide students with relevant, practice-ready legal experience. As a student here, you can explore the judiciary, the public sector, the intersection of law and business, and compliance through externship opportunities, or delve deeply into a variety of topics in law through intensive practicum courses.
