Law students are also able to obtain positions outside of the School of Law but within the SIU system. Find out more about the process here.

Those students who wish to utilize an Illinois Student Practice License (711 License) must have completed 45 hours of law credit and be in good academic standing. Having a 711 License allows students to represent clients and appear in court under the supervision of a licensed attorney.

It is the School of Law’s firm expectation that employers to whom the School furnishes assistance or facilities for interviewing or other career services functions will observe this principle of equal opportunity.
