Information for Public Interest Employers

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.

For additional information about public interest at YLS, visit the Public Interest Law section of the YLS website.

Additional Resources

Fundamentally, it pays to make a connection in the first summer. Hundreds of employers recruit upperclass students in the fall, as compared to only 15 employers who recruit first-year students in the spring. If you provide a first-year student with a quality summer experience, she will share her positive experience with fellow classmates which improves student awareness and may well increase interest in your organization. Post a position for 1L summer internships through our Job Posting System. Click here to find out more about the Spring Interview Program.

Students utilize our Career Management System to apply for job postings, participate in interview programs, and conduct general employer research. Employers can upload information on corporate culture such as career advancement tracks and diversity initiatives as well as Yale specific information such as key alumni contacts at your organization.

Many of our students are interested in combining private and public sector work during the summer and specifically request information about law firms that pay a student for the entire summer but allow them to work for half of the summer with a public interest organization and half with the firm. CDO produces two brochures about this topic; one brochure defines split public interest summer programs, and the other lists firms that currently provide split public interest summer opportunities. In addition to advertising these programs through our brochures, we also celebrate those firms during our interview programs. For employers who would like to discuss this opportunity further, please contact CDO at 432-1676 or

If you have alumni of Yale Law School at your organization, encourage them to join YLS Career Connections online via the CDO web site. Over 1,600 alumni are currently members and have offered to provide career advice to current students or fellow graduates. A student who develops a relationship with an attorney at your organization will be more likely to consider employment with you. In addition, CDO staff often consults Career Connections to locate interesting speakers for our programs. YLS alumni may also wish to have an Alumni Career Profile featured on CDO's website; if interested in creating a profile, alumni should email Tina Severson or Janelle Schmouder.

CDO offers numerous career related programming for students and alumni, including our 1L and 2L Mock Interview Programs and our annual Law Firm Practice Area Forum. If you are interested in participating in CDO programs, please send an email to expressing your interest. In your outreach, be as specific as possible regarding your interests.

Yale Law School student organizations host programs throughout the year for their members. For many of these programs, they engage with outside speakers. Many organizations have their own websites containing information about their mission, upcoming events and contact information.
