First-Year Student Opportunities: Be You at USD

Being a first-year law student is a rigorous full-time job. You may want to dive right into hands-on practice, but most of your 1L time and attention will focus on doctrinal coursework and learning how to effectively study law. While you can begin hands-on externships and clinical experience as soon as the summer after your first year, right now you are probably wondering: "What can I do as a 1L?"

At USD Law we believe it is important for our 1Ls to remember what brought you to law school--we want you to Be You at USD. Student involvement, even as a 1L, can help cultivate your legal interests, build a supportive community around you, and allow you to discover more about the legal profession.
