Public Service Career Services

carynMany students head to law school with a vision of working in public service or public interest after law school. A career in public interest law can vary from representing minority groups through civil rights organizations; first amendment cases through civil liberties groups; the poor through legal services groups or legal aid societies; indigent people through public defender offices; children or the disabled through specialized law centers; and the incarcerated through prisoners’ rights organizations, among many other opportunities.

At Moritz, there is dedicated Career Services staff focused on helping students navigate summer and permanent employment opportunities in public interest. To schedule an appointment, please contact Cybele Smith at smith.302@osu.edu or stop by room 140 in Drinko Hall.
