Cornell Law School Office of Public Service Short

Welcome Students to the Office of Public Service

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 and government agencies.  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.

The Office is staffed by Akua Akyea, Assistant Dean for Public Service and Michaela Azemi, Director of Pro Bono Services and Externships. 

Take advantage of one-on-one career counseling appointments.  To schedule an appointment, use the online booking system here, or contact Lisa Carberry at
