Public Service

While most Touro Law graduates choose to work in private law firms, many choose employment in public service. Public service comprises work with:
 
  • Government entities, from county district attorney offices and local civil government authorities to state offices and federal agencies
  • Public interest groups, which encompass not-for-profit organizations which represent disadvantaged or under-represented communities

Government and public interest employers prefer to hire law school graduates who have experience in – as well as a demonstrated commitment to and passion for – the areas of practice they focus on and the clients they serve. Touro Law students have ample opportunity to establish themselves as dedicated government or public interest law students while in law school. 

In fact, Touro Law Center is the first law school in the country to dedicate a portion of its building to house, rent free, public interest organizations that work on a variety of legal problems in our community. The William Randolph Hearst Public Advocacy Center is home to approximately 15 public interest organizations. Each tenant receives a rent-free office in exchange for one thing: a promise to use our students to help them with their legal work. This is an extraordinary opportunity for students to work one-on-one with attorneys and their clients in cutting edge public interest practices right on campus. These opportunities are almost always eligible for credit through the Clinic Office or work-study funding through the Financial Aid Office.

For more information, email Tom Maligno, Executive Director of the Public Advocacy Center and Director of Public Interest or call him at 631.761.7033.
