The Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC) works in collaboration with the Law School’s Center and Institutes to organize and sponsor programs in support of your interest in public service work. They include:

Public service practice profiles: PIRC organizes panels and workshops at the Law School to introduce you to practice areas and help you build contacts with attorneys working with public interest organizations and government agencies.  PIRC’s practice area programs complement workshops sponsored by the Career Planning Center (CPC), the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice,  and the Feerick Center for Social Justice and Dispute Resolution. These events will be listed on the Law School and PIRC’s Calendars and announced in Weekly Brief, the weekly calendar of events emailed to students by the Office of Student Affairs PIRC-UP!, the weekly listing of public service events emailed to students by PIRC.  Look for posters on bulletin boards throughout the law school as well. 

Job Search Workshops:  PIRC and the CPC produce programs and have developed written materials to provide you with an orientation and overview of areas such as the

 

  • summer public interest job search
  • resume and cover letter workshops
  • government honors programs
  • post-graduate fellowships
  • strategies for securing post-graduate employment
  • interviewing with particular employers (e.g. district attorneys and public defenders’ offices). 

These events will be listed on the Law School and PIRC’s Calendars and announced in Weekly Brief, the weekly newsletter of the Office of Student Affairs and PIRC-UP!, the weekly listing of public service events emailed to students by PIRC.  Look for posters on bulletin boards throughout the law school as well. 

Audios and materials from many of the programs are available for download at Program Materials.
