Spring Public Sector Recruiting Program

Registration for this program typically occurs in late October.

Delaney Post-Graduate Residency Program

This program, made possible thanks to a generous gift from alumni April McClain-Delaney, L’89 and Rep. John Delaney, L’88, was established to help fellows bridge the gap between law school and practice. It provides a powerful complement to host organizations’ existing professional development programming, while offering critical community-building, networking, and mentoring opportunities.
