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 alumni@law.uchicago.edu.


  • 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.
