Legislative Practice Center


Drake's Legislative Practice Center engages students in the legislative process by combining coursework with legislatvie internships.

Taking advantage of Drake Law School's close proximity to the Iowa State Capitol, the Legislative Practice Center places students in internships, where they draft bills, lobby legislators, and attend subcommittee meetings.

Completion of the Legislative Practice Center program will prepare you for careers in lobbying and legislative practice with entities such as administrative or government agencies, public interest groups, trade associations, unions, businesses, and private law firms engaged in governmental work.
