Public Interest/Government at BU Law

BU Law is home to a wide range of educational, clinical and pro bono activities which help you use your legal skills in the public interest. Besides being outstanding scholars and teachers, many of our faculty serve on boards of public interest organizations, testify before Congress on issues of national interest and lend their legal expertise to cases with far-reaching legal and social impact.

The Career Development & Public Service Office (CDO) is committed to working with students interested in pursuing public service careers through individual career counseling, national and regional public interest job fairs, conferences and on-campus recruiting. BU Law students and graduates work with employers across the United States and abroad (take a look at past BU Law internship placements), and our Public Interest Scholars and Loan Repayment Assistance programs provide financial support to students and alumni pursuing public interest careers.
