Public Interest Centers


PI Career Support Center

Chase College of Law provides career assistance for students seeking public interest careers, including career counseling, document review, networking, and interview assistance. Students participate in the Equal Justice Works career fair every year and apply for Equal Justice Works programs including the Rural Corps Program. We financially support stipends for students interning in public interest organizations during summer months. We invite public interest employers on campus to connect students with public interest opportunities. These efforts result in numerous public interest summer placements and post graduate positions for our students.
