We work with students to foster a commitment to public and professional service. Part of first-year J.D. orientation is a voluntary community service day, where new students can sign up to join current students in projects like Habitat for Humanity. During law school, students can participate in our voluntary Pro Bono Program, which involves working in organizations dedicated to underrepresented groups and or social issues.
