The Public Service and Public Policy Pathway is designed as a guided curriculum that will prepare you for a career in public service/public policy. Public service work may include legal work in all levels of government, and/or work on behalf of underrepresented people or causes. Public service lawyers work in government agencies, the courts, legislative bodies, legal services, non-profit, non-governmental (NGO) and law reform organizations. Practice may include litigation, transactional work, rulemaking, and/or policy analysis. Lawyers who work in the area of public policy may analyze issues that affect the public good and/or use a variety of strategies to influence public opinion and government decision-making.
