Looking for your first job out of law school? Talk to me about the Bridge-to-Practice Program!
The Bridge-to-Practice program is an amazing opportunity for any 3L searching for post-graduation employment.
Through the program, you can work for just about any organization of your choice (as long at it is not a private law firm) and get paid a stipend from NDLS to do so. You can see a list of organizations where previous Bridge-to- Practice participants have worked here. (This list is not an exhaustive list of options of organizations where you can work. It’s just a list of where past participants have worked. I can always work with you on finding a new organization.) You can read success stories of former Bridge-to-Practice participants here, here, here, and here.
If you are looking for your post-graduation job, talk to me about Bridge-to-Practice ASAP. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A conversation with me does not obligate you to the program but it does give you the chance to learn more about it and see if it is a fit for you.
