I understand that one of the many privileges of the legal profession is the opportunity to serve others, and I commit myself to seeking equal justice for all.

The Pledge of Professional Commitment

Becoming an attorney means serving the public, serving your professional development goals and, most importantly, serving your professional obligations. Engaging in any of the numerous service opportunities provided at Temple allows you to do all of these things. Whether it is providing information to a victim of domestic violence, drafting incorporation documents for a non-profit entity, or painting the walls of a neighborhood building, serving others is essential to developing your professional identity. Temple recognizes student pro bono and public interest commitment through the Rubin Public Interest Honor Society, administered by the Office of Public Programs. To learn more about service opportunities that fit your skills and interests or for more information about career planning in the public interest and public service field, please contact Lisa Hurlbutt, Director of Public Interest Programs, at lcareer@temple.edu.
