Public Interest Legal Careers Guide, 2nd ed. (2012)

The path to a public interest career is less defined than more traditional career options and the second edition of Public Interest Legal Careers Guide provides information, advice and resources tailored to helping students develop a public interest career in one complete package.

The Guide's 200+ pages are intended to assist students with: identifying what you are looking for in your career; building a foundation for that career during law school; locating internships, summer employment and articling positions; creating an effective public interest application package (with samples); and navigating the job interview and acceptance process. The Guide also offers information and advice for those students who are looking to incorporate public interest into a more traditional private practice.
