Business and Entrepreneurship Law Program: Co-op Program
To complete the requirements for the Business and Entrepreneurship Law Concentration, a student must complete a co-op related to business law and transactional lawyering.
In collaboration with the Earle Mack School of Law Co-op Program, the Business and Entrepreneurship Law Program has developed a select group of co-op placements specifically for students pursuing the concentration. These placements have ranged from working with the entrepreneurial business practice group at a leading national law firm based in Philadelphia, to assisting the general counsel of a multi-billion dollar private equity fund manager, to a securities law assignment at a major investment advisory organization, to placements with government regulators. These placements are designed for students entering their third year of study who have completed the core courses in the concentration’s curriculum. They often require a minimum GPA or other qualification.
Whether students choose to pursue one of these selected co-ops or are exploring transactional practice in one of the other co-op placements offered by the Earle Mack School of Law Co-op Program, members of the program's faculty, in collaboration with the Co-op Program faculty, work with the students to support them in their placements and to provide them the educational resources needed to make the most of their experience in the field.
