Notre Dame Law School continues to expand its global learning opportunities for students.
Beginning this summer, a select number of rising second-year law students will be placed in paid internships with leading law firms and companies in Dublin, Ireland. The internships will provide these students with invaluable experience as they are exposed to transnational legal issues and the laws of Ireland and the European Union.
Dublin has emerged as a European business capital for technology companies, the oil-and-gas industry, and other sectors. The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union —“Brexit” — will make Dublin an even more important legal hub.
“With the onset of Brexit, law firms are looking beyond London,” said G. Marcus Cole, the Joseph A. Matson Dean and Professor of Law at Notre Dame Law School. “London will remain important, but both U.S. and U.K. law firms are recognizing the need to go beyond the U.K. After Brexit happens, Ireland will be the last major English-speaking common-law jurisdiction in the European Union.”
All first-year students at Notre Dame Law School are eligible to apply.
