If you weren’t able to get involved in any extra curricular public interest activities last semester, or you’re looking for more ways to volunteer your time, it’s not too late. There are many student organizations that provide ways to volunteer including:
- The Inmate Legal Assistance Project
- The Protective Order Project (POP has training Thursday, Room 121, 3:30-5:00 p.m.)
- The Tenant Assistance Project
When you volunteer your time pro bono, you can report those hours to firstname.lastname@example.org and track your pro bono commitment. The law school recommends each student volunteer at least 20 hours per year, but getting involved in any of these opportunities can allow you to go above and beyond. In addition to pro bono opportunities, the law school has many other student organizations and ways to get involved–you can check out a full list of activities here.
