The Public Interest Law Center (PILC) is the headquarters for public service law at NYU. We are interested in supporting every student in doing public service, whether for a summer, a clinic experience, or a lifetime. PILC provides counseling on internships and post-graduate jobs, supports students applying for fellowships, hosts lectures and programs in public interest law, runs scholarship programs, works closely with public interest student groups, creates publications to inform students about public service careers, and acts as a sounding board for student, alumni, faculty, and administrators about public service careers.
PILC’s goal is to encourage all NYU Law students to incorporate public service into their careers.
PILC has a dedicated team of attorney advisers and staff to assist all JD and LL.M. students and alumni looking to pursue a career in public interest law. Our advisers come from a variety of legal backgrounds and bring an extensive amount of insight to those looking to learn more about public interest law; read their bios and make an appointment.
PILC offers one-on-one advising to help you:
- think through the types of work that might interest you;
- identify organizations offering internships, fellowships, and post-graduate positions;
- help you choose classes and activities;
- review your resume and cover letters;
