Welcome to the Public Interest Center at St. John’s School of Law
Building on St. John’s Vincentian mission of serving those in need, the Center recognizes the ethical obligation of lawyers to promote social justice. The Center is charged with coordinating and expanding the Law School’s Pro Bono Service Project, the Public Interest Auction, the Public Interest Summer Fellowship Program and others. We develop and host programs on public interest law, counsel students on public interest opportunities and generally foster a view of public interest as intrinsic to the study and practice of law.
Whether you want to work in the public interest, seek practical experience helping clients or give back to your community, the Public Interest Center can offer you guidance, resources, training and support.
This website offers information about our programs, curriculum and student opportunities. You will also find a resources page where we share information on pro bono work and public interest law.
