Social justice careers offer lawyers the invaluable opportunity to aid and serve indigent communities. To promote participation in this field, the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center will use “Lawyers for Others” to allow students and alumni access to the latest public service fellowships, summer internships, and post-graduate career opportunities.
