Programs & Centers
Keynote Speaker or Panelist
Public interest attorneys invited to speak to students about their career paths and share career advice (normally 1 hour lunch-hour talk). Also regularly seek speakers on substantive topics for our annual symposium.
Volunteer attorneys conduct job interviews and offer feedback to help 1L students. We generally ask for a 2-3 hour commitment during the late afternoon/early evening (4-7 p.m.).
Public Interest Alumni Mentors
This is a commitment to be “on-call,” as alumni mentors need not be on campus. They agree to reply to emails/phone calls from SLS students and chat with them about their careers. We sometimes also ask our PI Alumni mentors to talk to admits about their SLS experience and the work they’re doing now.
We have a number of public interest job search handbooks (e.g., International Human Rights, Government) and often ask alumni to write blurbs sharing their advice.
