Public Interest Entities

As is the case with government positions, DC has many more nonprofit job opportunities available for lawyers than in many other parts of the country. And now, due to the emergence of loan repayment assistance programs, many more law graduates are able to accept such positions. The Law Library has a number of resources, both electronic and in print, to assist you with this research. The Office of Public Interest and Community Service should be consulted for guidance on locating specific job openings, but these resources can assist you as you prepare to interview and research potential employers.
