Public Interest Law Center

Career Resources

The staff of the Public Interest Law Center (PILC) gives personal guidance to students and alumni focused on public interest or governmental employment, as well as to those seeking to incorporate pro bono work into a career in the private sector. PILC is staffed by full-time lawyers and administrators who assist students in exploring and making career choices and in obtaining summer, school-term, and full-time positions. PILC's counselors are public interest lawyers with impressive resumes who work closely with students to create career strategies to accomplish students' individual goals.

PILC publishes Career Handbooks for each class as well as a Fellowship/Honors Program Handbook. Links to these handbooks as well as videos of PILC career workshops are available to students on the menu at left.

NYU School of Law founded the innovative Public Service Law Network Worldwide (now known as PSJD), the “one stop site” for public service law jobs. PSJD enables students and lawyers to identify internships, fellowships and employment opportunities with public interest organizations, government agencies and private law firms with significant public interest practices. A link to PSJD is also available on the menu at left.

Today, many career resources are available on-line. The PILC staff has divided them into domestic and international links that students can access by using the links on the left.
