The Public Interest Peer Mentor Program is one of the many opportunities available at UNC School of Law for incoming students who are considering a public interest career. Each year, we pair first-year students with second- and third-year student mentors who help with the transition to law school, answer questions, and share their experience with public interest classes, activities, and job search.
As you may know, Carolina Law has a strong commitment to public interest law, which we define as encompassing legal services, non-profit organizations, impact litigation firms, federal/state/local government, district attorney and public defender offices, non-governmental and international organizations, and many private law firms.
Some of the students in our program have already decided that public interest is the career path for them, and others aren’t yet sure. We encourage you to take advantage of the Public Interest Peer Mentor Program and see if this is a good path for you as a student and as a professional. Please complete an application() and return it to me by Friday, August 19.
On behalf of the Career Development Office, I look forward to meeting you soon!
Director of Public Interest Advising
