Villanova, PA is an historic town, known for its regional rail train, the Norristown High Speed Line. The town is a cluster of prosperous Philadelphia suburbs that run along the east-west tracks of the historic Pennsylvania Railroad. According to the National Register Information System, the Bridge in Radnor Township No. 2 and Camp-Woods are both mentioned on the National Register of Historic Places. Still, in the midst of all these nationally recognized locations, the most notable feature of the town is Villanova University (and its accompanying graduate school).
Villanova University is a short 12 miles from Philadelphia, drawing in an abundance of culturally diverse students from around the globe, all coming to experience one of the fifth-largest cities in the US. Villanova plays on its proximity to Philadelphia by including “Around Philadelphia” (a ‘What to do in’ source) directly on their Prospective Students webpage.
Educationally, Kristen’s alma mater, Villanova University School of Law, is a top ranked school. Villanova offers a legal education designed to teach the rules and practical applications of law, to demonstrate how lawyers analyze legal issues and express arguments and conclusions, to explore the ethical and moral dimensions of practicing law and maintaining professional conduct, and much more. According to the National Law Journal (published in accordance with the Villanova School of Law), in 2013 the university was ranked No. 42 out of 50 carefully selected, top graduate law institutions across America.
This ranking is annually determined by identifying the number (and further calculating the exact percentage) of juris doctor graduates that are hired as first-year associates by prestigious law firms. In 2012, nine percent of Villanova graduates accepted positions with nationally accredited firms. Additionally, Villanova Law was recognized by the National Law Journal as a choice school for the mega-firm Reed Smith. In the 2014 statistical poll for “Best Graduate Schools,” Villanova Law was listed as 98th, overall in the country.
In conjunction with academia, the Villanova School of Law offers its students the chance to participate in an externship program. These externship programs are an opportunity for students to earn academic credit while working under the supervision of a practicing lawyer and/or law firm. Along with exceptional career advancement opportunities, participating in an externship allows for excellent experimental training in a students’ field of study. Villanova University offers externships in over 30 diverse fields, as well as allows its students to submit their own externship proposal (based on the Externship Policy set in place).
To complete your externship you must work a minimum of 168 hours for the host organization, complete all necessary paperwork, attend weekly meetings with your faculty advisor, etc. Ultimately, fulfilling an externship from VLS could launch your career on a trajectory of your choosing—an option that is only granted to those who excel past their potential and work fervently towards their future(s).
