3L deadlines for public service jobs!

Welcome back 3L students!

There are upcoming opportunities to apply for public service jobs this fall 

While the majority of post-graduate positions are secured closer to graduation (or afterward), there are some positions in the public sector that have earlier application periods. There are several time sensitive opportunities that you should be aware of, including the opportunities listed below. 

The CDO is available to help you with job search strategy and applications throughout the year! Schedule an appointment 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. We look forward to working with you!

 Other Fellowships 

  • Fellowships are an opportunity to work for a fixed time period—usually 1-2 years—in the public service sector.
