One of the greatest strengths of Social Justice Initiatives at Columbia Law School is the breadth and depth of our public interest alumni community.
We are the hub connecting public service graduates with each other, students, and jobs in the public interest and government through our graduate advising services, events and robust graduate networks.
- SJI's career advisors are here to serve all Columbia Law School graduates. Unsure where to start? Contact Tory Messina, our dedicated graduate advisor, to set up a meeting or initial call.
