2L deadlines for public service jobs!

Welcome back 2Ls!

We know it’s early, but there are upcoming deadlines for some public interest summer positions.

There are many opportunities for your 2L spring and summer—and while the 2L search starts earlier than the 1L summer search, there is still time to think about what you want to do. We encourage you to meet with the CDO by October to get a sense of your job search strategy. The externship office is a terrific resource as well.

That being said, there are several time sensitive opportunities that you should be aware of, including those listed below.

Your public service team is here to help with your summer job search! Schedule an appointment with Elise Logemann, Andrea Montague, or Judy Stein in the CDO through Symplicity, by emailing careers@law.du.edu, or by stopping in our Suite, 223. You can check out the bios for our counselors here. For externship questions, contact Professor Alexi Freeman at afreeman@law.du.edu.

There will be opportunities to apply for summer funding for public service 2L summer positions. Meet with us for more information.

We look forward to working with you! Now for those deadlines:
