Public interest employers

Wayne Law students are eager to work with nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies during the summer, academic year and after graduation. The Office of Career and Professional Development wants to help you connect with our students.

Services for public interest employers


The office maintains an online database for employers to advertise available opportunities to Wayne Law students and graduates, Symplicity. We invite public interest employers to post volunteer or paid positions for students throughout the year as well as postgraduate positions including fellowships and fellowship host invitations. Learn more about posting a position here.

Pro bono

Public interest employers are also welcome to recruit student volunteers for short-term pro bono projects and ongoing volunteer opportunities by participating in the Wayne Law Student Voluntary Pro Bono Program. The program encourages Wayne Law students to devote a minimum of fifty hours of pro bono legal services during their law school careers.

Career fair

The office also hosts an annual Public Service Career Fair during the winter term. The fair brings representatives of dozens of nonprofit, legal services, and governmental organizations to the Law School to share information and engage in table talk with Wayne Law students.
