Law Schools With a Commitment to Public Interest

Many students applying to law schools seek programs where they can gain skills and experience to work in the public service – often the government and the nonprofit sectors.

It can be difficult to assess on your own which law schools have a strong commitment to public service.

Fortunately there are two resources you can use to research these programs:

1) Equal Justice Works Guide to Law Schools – An interactive online resource of public service opportunities, curricula and financial programs at more than 150 law schools in the United States.

2) National Jurist Pre-Law News – leading news source for pre-law students.  National Jurist recently graded law schools for their commitment to public interest.

Connect with Nathan Elton, pre-law advisor and Director of Career Services, if you would like to learn more about public interest law!
