Pursuing public interest work calls for resources, support, and dedication. From incubators to working groups, we’re here to help alumni make it happen.


Connect with other alumni in your area of law or interests within social justice work and help welcome new graduates into the field by joining our alumni-directed Google Groups. Get referrals, help as you encounter a new twist on a legal challenge, or involved in discussions of new developments in the field.

Each group is led by co-facilitators who are alumni with at least 3 years of experience in the field. Co-facilitators provide basic administration and oversight for the group, recruit new members, and generate meetings and discussions. If you’d like to facilitate a group, let us know!
