On November 7, the Center for Public Interest Law (CPIL), Law
Career Services (LCS) and the Public Interest Law Association
(PILA) joined forces to provide guidance to students interested in using
their Summer to work for social justice! Although the majority of
public interest internships are unpaid, Shaye Loughlin, Director of CPIL, and Alisa Rosales, LCS Associate Director of Public Service Law, pointed out numerous resources through
DePaul Law and various community organizations available to help public
interest students. DePaul's strong commitment to public interest law
and social justice was evident with the plethora of opportunities
offered to aid students seeking to work in public interest.
CPIL students Sam Keen, Robin Wagner, Leah Farmer
and Anita Gupta were shining examples of students committed to public
interest work. They spoke about their experiences working in public
interest and provided helpful job search and funding tips to students
looking to do the same.
