Gaining experience

Begin to explore careers in law through various resources: readings, informational interviews with attorneys, externships (shadowing), and internships in a legal environment.

Get involved in activities that interest you - student organizations, study abroad, research with faculty, leadership, community service, etc. NAU has a Pre-Law organization, Phi Alpha Delta, but you should get involved in activities and organizations that interest you, not necessarily just Pre-Law related organizations and activities. 

Each department may have additional resources to help students find internships and gain legal experience.  We highly encourage students to visit their department websites and reference the list of Pre-Law advisors on campus.
