In addition to securing full-time summer clerkships, academic-year externships and post-bar/postgraduate clerkships offered by our public sector colleagues, Southwestern students collectively volunteered over 17,000 pro bono hours to the Greater Los Angeles Community in the last year alone through Southwestern’s Public Service Program.
