Cornell Law School Office of Public Service Short


The Office of Public Service helps you explore legal employment, funding, and pro bono opportunities during law school and beyond.  We provide career counseling, present programs, and provide resources on non-profit organizations, government agencies, the judiciary, academic careers, and small law firm practice.  In addition, we coordinate summer funding for unpaid work, and provides information on post-graduate loan repayment assistance and fellowships. Finally, we connect you with volunteer opportunities and advise public interest student groups.

Take advantage of one-on-one career counseling appointments with Karen Comstock, Assistant Dean for Public Service, and Elizabeth Peck, Assistant Dean for Professional Development and Clerkships. To schedule an appointment contact Molly Brewton or call 255-1458. You can typically see a counselor within 24 hours, and if you have a time-sensitive issue to discuss, often sooner.
