USF law students have many opportunities to participate in public interest projects.
All law students are encouraged to contribute to the local legal community through the USF Pro Bono Program.
The USF Pro Bono Program matches students with short-term and long-term volunteer projects at legal aid agencies, court-based programs, and social service providers. Flexible and varied opportunities provide students with options that fit their busy schedules.
Student projects include:
- Certified court practice
- Client intake and interviewing
- Fact investigation
- Legal research and writing
- Legislative advocacy
- Policy analysis
- Trial preparation
Students interested in pursuing public interest and public sector legal careers upon graduation can demonstrate their commitment to public service by obtaining a Public Interest Law Certificate.
