Suing the Government Is a Growth Industry: How to make the most from your law degree (and your life) with a career in public-interest law.
Sometimes law students are told they have two options: a miserable life earning decent money at a law firm, or a rewarding job coupled with a vow of poverty. This isn’t true. On October 4, Bob McNamara, a senior attorney with the Institute for Justice, will discuss his public-interest career and steps you can take to have a career at IJ. Matt Davis, a 3L who spent his last summer working at IJ will talk as well. The Institute for Justice, the nation’s leading libertarian public-interest law firm, offers the best of both worlds: cutting-edge constitutional litigation on issues that actually matter to real people, combined with competitive pay. Sound interesting? Learn what steps you can take now to put yourself on a path to litigating the kind of cases you read about in the newspaper and your casebooks.
