Careers With Green & Schafle
Expand Your Learning Beyond the Law School Walls With a Law Firm Summer Clerkship
Newly-minted lawyers come out of law school with a good grasp of the law in the area they want to practice, along with the invaluable skill of knowing how to “think like a lawyer.” What they soon realize is that one thing law school didn’t teach them was how to actually practice law. A potential client walks through the door; now what? Experience is the best – if not the only – teacher when it comes to knowing how to talk to a client, how to start a case, what to do next, and how to see a case through to a successful conclusion.
At Green & Schafle, we are committed to doing our part to help build Philadelphia’s next generation of great lawyers. If you are currently attending law school and are interested in learning the skills to become a trial lawyer, consider applying for a clerkship with Green & Schafle.
Our law firm has consistently hired law students for internships from Villanova Law, Temple Law, Drexel Law, Widener University Delaware Law School, and Penn State Law. Our law firm coordinates with various law schools to place law students for externship credit through the semester or summer, or we have hired summer clerkships for rising 2L and 3L students, with the possibility of placement in our firm. Our clerks receive mentoring from the firm’s partners while learning valuable skills and building their budding careers through networking and hands-on professional development.”
We are looking for talented law students interested in helping us assist our clients while learning the foundations of the law and how to apply it in a practical setting. We are an equal opportunity employer that respects and values diversity both in our office and in the broader legal community. If you are a law student looking to learn more about civil litigation and law practice in a supportive environment, call Green & Schafle at 215-462-3330 to learn more about our opportunities or schedule an interview.
