Director of Public Interest Programs
The Office of Public Interest Programs serves as the administrative hub for public interest activities at the law school and is a dedicated career services resource for students and graduates interested in public interest and pro bono opportunities. The office is led by an experienced public interest attorney and specializes in career counseling, networking support, job fair coordination, event programming, and post-graduate fellowship application assistance. The office also connects students with mentors, internships, and pro bono opportunities.
Each year, Temple Law graduates launch careers in public interest practice at a rate well above the regional and national averages, contributing to an extensive public interest alumni network and solidifying our position as a leader in public interest legal education and training.
Whatever a student’s individual career aspirations may be, Temple encourages all students to begin meeting their ethical obligations as future lawyers by participating in pro bono and community service activities while in law school. Typically, about a third of the graduating class qualifies for admission into the Rubin Public Interest Honor Society, which recognizes students who demonstrate exceptional commitment to public interest throughout law school.
Temple’s emphasis on service supports and nurtures students as they work on behalf of their communities during law school and upon graduation.
