BLS - OCPD: From Theory to Practice

Prepared for the Real World

Stepping out of the classroom and into the real world after graduation is a huge transition that ordinarily requires a learning curve. Instead, our graduates are sought after and praised by employers specifically for their “excellent work ethic” and “preparedness” that gives them a competitive edge and a seamless step into practice.

That important edge is the culmination of a multitude of experiential opportunities we provide for you during your studies, in preparation for post-graduate practice.

Opportunities to Make a Difference

Brooklyn Law School’s Office of Public Service Programs is an important component of our curriculum and has long been one of the finest in the nation. 

The OCPD recommends that students committed to a career—or just wanting to explore an internship or other experience—in public service, consult with the Office of Public Service Programs. The Office is dedicated entirely to helping you gain entry to this specific and competitive area of the law. They will introduce you to key players and organizations in the public service arena, and direct you to special sources of funding, externships, pro bono placements, fellowships and career opportunities here in New York, a national center for public interest law, or across the country. The Office of Public Service Programs also holds programming events throughout the year, including informational sessions with various public interest employers, resume and cover letter workshops, and brownbag lunches featuring public service practitioners.  

Study Abroad Programs
You can combine your legal studies with travel abroad through our established exchange programs with universities in Europe and Asia.

Fellowships
High-achieving, motivated students can pursue their passion and interest in a specific field of law while building a resume through numerous Fellowship opportunities.
