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.

As a requirement for graduation, all students must complete fifty hours of public service during their three years of law school. 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
