Public service is a core value of the UW School of Law. A key pillar of the law school’s mission to be
Leaders for the Global Common Good is the commitment to Generous Public Service.
We realize our commitment to Generous Public Service in many ways. To fulfill
the Juris Doctor requirement, every student performs 60 hours of public service
legal work. The public service requirement provides them with the opportunity to
witness the importance of public service and thereby deepens their commitment to
justice and the rule of law.
Students access information and opportunities about public service in two key
ways. Our Clinical Law Program
provides an opportunity for rich
learning combined with service. The Center for Public Service Law
offers a wide array of programming, professional development and career
coaching and additional ways for students to fulfill their public service goals.
