How Do I Gain Experience?

In addition to course selection and student leadership opportunities on campus, you can gain experience in public service law by participating in an externship or volunteering your time in pro bono legal service. Students interested in externship opportunities are encouraged to contact Professor Lisa Martin, Director of Experiential Curriculum at martinl@law.edu. To learn more about pro bono opportunities with local service organizations, please contact OCPD at (202) 319-5132 or jobs@law.edu.

The law school offers summer stipend awards each year to first- and second-year law students with unpaid government and public interest legal internships.  For summer 2016, 20 law students received funding.
