The Office of Public Interest and Community Service is pleased to invite incoming students to join the Public Interest Fellows Corps which, launched in 2010, provides enhanced programming, counseling support and a community of peers for students hoping to use their law degrees to advance justice. We designed the program to offer fellows the support and guidance they need to explore non-profit and government opportunities in the U.S. and overseas as an intentional part of their law school experience. Fellows typically join in their first year, and the program welcomes transfer students.
