YLS students are very interested in working with government and non-profit organizations during the summers, terms, and after graduation. In fact, typically 15-20% of YLS graduates take public interest jobs as their first non-clerkship employment after graduation. Five years after graduation, almost 30% are in public interest positions.
There are numerous methods for public interest employers to connect with YLS students and alumni, including through our interview programs, our job posting system, PSJD, and the YLS Pro Bono Network.
