The Georgetown Law Fall Government and Public Interest Recruitment Programs provide federal, state, and local government agencies and non-profit organizations the opportunity to recruit Georgetown Law students for summer internships and entry-level opportunities. The Fall Government and Public Interest Recruitment Programs consist of the Government and Public Interest Interview Program (GPI) series, our on-campus interview programs for paid or unpaid summer internships, the Government & Public Interest Resume Collect Program, and the Spotlight on Government Information Fair.

Government and Public Interest Program (GPI)

The 2020 Government and Public Interest Interview Programs (GPI) are designed specifically for federal, state, and local government agencies and non-profit organizations that are ready to begin recruiting second- and third- year students for PAID and UNPAID summer internship and PAID entry-level opportunities.

For the Fall 2020 semester, we anticipate conducting GPI virtually. We will continue to administer the bulk of our program through Symplicity and will permit employers to choose the virtual platform that they wish to use to conduct interviews. Interviews will take place on the following dates: 

GPI September Session: 
Thursday, September 3
Wednesday, September 16
Wednesday, September 23

GPI October Session:
Wednesday, October 7
Friday, October 16
Tuesday, October 27

GPI November Session: 
Friday, November 6
Additional dates TBD

Please note, in order to make this process as seamless as possible, support our students, and meet your needs, we will be limiting the number of employers to five per interview date. 

Unlike other fall recruiting programs, the Government and Public Interest Interview Programs are prescreened, which means that participating employers review candidates' resumes and cover letters and then select the students whom they wish to interview. Employer research and bidding, resume/cover letter upload, interview selection notification, and self-determined interview scheduling will be conducted online via Symplicity.

Government and Public Interest Resume Collect Program

If you are interested in recruiting our students for summer employment opportunities and attend any of our virtual GPI interview programs, we invite you to participate in our Government & Public Interest Resume Collect Program. The Government & Public Interest Resume Collect Program is open to all employers offering paid or unpaid summer jobs. Please note, Georgetown Law students have guaranteed summer funding for unpaid public sector internships.

Spotlight on Government and Public Sector Program

The Spotlight on Government Information Fair provides a forum for government employers and Georgetown Law students to engage in invaluable informational exchange about hiring programs and a range of federal, state and local government agencies. Spotlight 2020 will be held in March. Registration for Spotlight will open in January.

Public Sector Recruitment Program (PSRP)

The Georgetown University Law Center and the George Washington University Law School invite you to participate in the 2020 Public Sector Recruiting Program (PSRP), an annual opportunity to recruit current law students for summer 2020 and entry-level employment opportunities.  Over 200 DC area and nationwide government agencies, non profits and public interest law firms participated in 2019.

Partner Fellowships

Georgetown provides $20,000 to create new, one-year fellowship positions for new graduates at non-profits and state or local government agencies.
