Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast. Today we're talking about how to have a successful law school internship or externship experience. For most law students, these jobs are their first experiences in the legal workplace (or maybe in any professional workplace). Be sure you're behaving like a responsible professional, and you'll set yourself up for success in any internship or externship!

In this episode we discuss:

  • What's the difference between an internship and an externship?
  • Different types of internships or externships, and how the expectations vary
  • What should you do (and not do) in a legal workplace?
  • How to be a professional
  • What do people really expect of you?
  • Practical tips for day-to-day scenarios (meetings, phone calls, email, etc.)
  • How to get along with others in the workplace
  • Defining your goals for this experience
  • Traits you should develop to succeed as a lawyer
