Public Service Requirement

Every JD student is required to perform a minimum of 50 hours of supervised, uncompensated, law-related public service work during his or her law school career as a prerequisite to graduation. The public service requirement:

  • Educates students about their professional responsibilities, particularly their obligation to perform public service work as practicing attorneys;
  • Helps students develop practical lawyering skills by supervising them in real work situations and teaching them to integrate the theory and practice of law; and
  • Raises awareness among students of meaningful career and public service opportunities.

There are many different ways to satisfy the requirement.
