Public Service

‎‎Recognizing that lawyers are in a strong position to effect positive institutional and social change, the School of Law expects and encourages all students to explore a variet‎‎y of ways their interests, skills and talents can best serve the public‎‎. The public service requirement does not need to be law-related. Students a‌rfor LuAnn on the main public service page 9 6 2013

As a requirement for graduation, all students must complete fifty hours of public service during their three years of law school.  In addition, the public service policy encourages students to log their public service hours within thirty days of the service activity. The purpose and vision of the public service program along with examples of qualifying public service activities appear in the Guidelines for Required Public Service Policy from the school's Policy Manual and in this document: Public Service Requirement.
