Your Dean’s Society gift help students gain first-hand legal experience through our summer Apprentice Program.

On just the second day of her legal internship, Amanda Blons found herself assisting Sara Richey ’10, partner at the Richey Law Firm, during a trial. “There’s a level of hands-on experience that’s unmatched with the Apprentice program.”

“Through talking to my peers, I don’t think that there were too many people that had quite the same experience as I did. Getting the real
life experience was really valuable.”
