Serve Specific Clients or Causes

Many students come to law school wanting to serve a specific client group, or develop that goal as they move through their education. Different types of clients are associated with specific subject matter specialties and practice settings, and distinct rewards and demands for lawyers working with them.

Non-profit organizations

Lawyers focused on serving non-profit organizations:

  • Specialize in a broad range of areas, such as employment and labor law, tax, real estate, and health care
  • Practice primarily in non-profit organizations or firms representing them
  • Face time demands that vary according to practice area and level of the position, but can be as heavy as representing private-sector clients
  • Enjoy rewards that include serving institutions with community service missions and working with dedicated professionals with a similar mission-driven approach
  • Possess credentials that often include volunteer activities relevant to the organizations mission
  • Need substantive knowledge, technical skills, and interpersonal skills
