Apprenticeship Program

Fordham Law School Apprenticeship Program for Small to Midsize Law Firms

Fordham Law’s Apprenticeship Program is designed to provide a win-win experience for recent J.D. graduates and employers who do not traditionally hire straight out of law school.

The Apprenticeship Program enables employers to hire, full-time for one year, a recent J.D. graduate. The employer benefits from the product of a Fordham Law education—a professional ready, willing, and able to hit the ground running and make immediate contributions, whether in a small to midsize law firm or in-house setting. The recent J.D. graduate receives invaluable experience and credentials to allow them to lay a foundation for a successful legal career.

Employers participating in the Apprenticeship Program determine the salary for the recent J.D. graduate joining their team. If you would like to post an apprenticeship opportunity, please email the Career Planning Center at

Fordham Law is committed to working with you, as a prospective employer, to make the recruitment process as seamless as possible.
