Columbia Law School’s Office of Public Interest/Public Service Law and Careers is one of the largest offices at any law school devoted to nurturing students who are interested in exploring public interest or government work—while on campus, or as part of a future career. The PI/PS Office provides professional development, career services, and other support for students and graduates, and oversees key programs including the Max Berger '71 Public Interest/Public Service Fellows Program, Human Rights Internship Program, and Pro Bono Program.
The Office of Private Sector Careers helps students and alumni explore opportunities in the private sector. We advise students and alumni, provide career-related resources, and host career exploration, professional development, and recruitment programs.
OJC offers advising, placement, and processing services; collaborates with faculty, students, and staff to promote a clerkships-oriented culture; and creates meaningful opportunities for candidates and clerks to network with—and learn from—the judiciary and each other through innovative programming and events.
