Volunteer as a public interest alum
Alumni volunteers serve as a resource for Law School students seeking public interest law opportunities.
There are three areas in which we would appreciate your involvement:
- Update your directory profile on Alumni and Friends, which allows students to contact you via the alumni directory, sending a message to your email address. If you have any questions, please contact our Alumni Relations office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Speaking with current students about public service through participation on a panel or at a student organization event. To volunteer to present a lunch program please reach out to Susan Curry, Director of Public Interest Law, or a relevant student organization. Lunch programs and panels include:
- skills programming that focuses on developing the skills necessary for successful career development;
- informational programming featuring speakers sharing their own career stories, challenges, and successes;
- and substantive law programming that highlights speeches, lectures, workshops and panel presentations on various topics relevant to a public interest law practice.
- Hiring or hosting students in summer, school-year, or postgraduate positions within your organization. The Law School provides both guaranteed summer funding and a year-long postgraduate fellowship for students pursuing public interest work. Learn more about public interest at UChicago Law. Post a public interest position. If you have questions about what position are eligible for summer funding or postgraduate fellowships, contact Susan Curry.
