PILG Week of Service

Week Of Service… volunteer… intern… job!

Law School is only three short years. So make the most of it by gaining experience early. And the best place for students to gain experience is in the public interest sector. The volunteer positions you can secure for this summer will propel you into that stellar position you want the summer before you graduate. Plus, volunteering in the public sector gives back to the community in tremendous ways.

So how do you find these positions? The Public Interest Law Group has many volunteer opportunities in all areas of law; civil, criminal, family, local, state, federal, and many other special interest areas. PILG’s annual Week of Service is the best way to test out these legal entities and see where you might be interested in seeking a summer position. “Week of Service” also helps to highlight and support the Dean’s Summer Public Interest and Pro Bono Fellowships, which are awarded to qualified students pursuing practical, meaningful experiences working in the public interest field during the summer.

***All hours logged during the Week of Service will count towards the 150 needed to receive a special chord for graduation. You can also include any hours that you volunteer at other non-WOS site organizations. Be sure to log any service hours you complete in Symplicity!***
