Through the Institute, the Blume Public Interest Scholars Program provides financial and programmatic support to students who exhibit exceptional promise as future public interest leaders.

Blume Public Interest Scholars engage in traditional and experiential legal studies, while training for their careers as public interest advocates, public officials, policy makers, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries.

Blume Scholars engage in a combination of academic coursework, clinical pedagogy, and tailored experiential learning opportunities. Blume Scholars also engage in cultivated public interest community building and career development programming, including Public Interest Orientation.

The Blume program at Georgetown Law is co-directed by Georgetown Professor and Appellate Courts Immersion Clinic Director Brian Wolfman, who serves as the Blume Faculty Director, and by Morgan Lynn-Alesker, Assistant Dean in the Office of Public Interest and Community Service (OPICS).

Also, OPICS coordinates the Blume Leaders in Residence program, where we welcome practicing public interest leaders to spend time advising, mentoring, and teaching Blume Scholars and other Georgetown students committed to public interest. Each year, the Leaders in Residence teach the Blume Upper Class Seminar, offering Blume Scholars a window into the lives and careers of attorneys making significant impacts on their communities and the world.
