The Public Service Experience at Columbia Law School
From ensuring that you meet like-minded peers and mentors to helping you manage the potential pressures of following a less-traditional path toward a fulfilling career, SJI provides abundant support and assistance. Few law schools offer this kind of "one-stop shopping."
Social Justice Initiatives will assist you to explore and enter the many area of public service law including:
- nonprofit organizations
- government agencies
- international human rights organizations
- pro bono service in private law firms
SJI provides information, counseling, and guidance about summer and semester internships, permanent jobs and fellowships. It houses Columbia’s Pro Bono Program. SJI also serves as a focal point for students interested in the Law School's public service courses, externships and clinics, helping you to forge a comprehensive education that meets your evolving individual needs.
SJI's schedule of activities ensures that there are plenty of relevant events for you to attend. Leading and emerging social justice advocates speak on a wide range of topics and meet individually with students.
