A career in public interest provides unique rewards and presents special challenges. Temple provides various resources to help students learn about the practice of public interest law, connect with academic year and summer opportunities, and navigate the path to becoming a public interest lawyer.

Individual counseling is available to and encouraged for all students interested in resume review, career guidance, information about public interest and pro bono internships and opportunities, and any other public interest career related questions. Lisa Hurlbutt, Director of Public Interest Programs, is happy to set up a time to talk to you about your options whether for a summer, a semester, or a lifetime. Ms. Hurlbutt was a public interest attorney in Philadelphia for seven years before joining Temple in the fall of 2013. To schedule an appointment with Ms. Hurlbutt, email lcareer@temple.edu.
