Public Interest Fellows Program
In 2010, Georgetown Law introduced the Public Interest Fellows Program - a comprehensive program for students wishing to pursue a public interest track through law school and a public interest career. The program provides supplemental and focused career development support through OPICS, sets curricular guidelines, and fosters a sense of community among the participants. The program supports students through all years of law school, developing a tight-knit but ever-growing community of public interest-minded students and alumni.
Highlights of the program include:
- One-on-one mentoring with an upperclass student or recent alum
- Opportunities to engage with faculty through a series of "faculty teas"
- "Welcome to Law School" breakfast discussion series
- Individualized career and academic counseling
- Unique social and community events for program participants

Interested students must apply the summer before they begin coursework at Georgetown (applications will be available on the admitted students website).
