The Judge Harry Pregerson Public Service Boot Camp or “Harry’s Boot Camp” is designed and named in honor of the esteemed 9th Circuit judge whose work exemplified the highest values of service in the public interest.

Through Harry’s Boot Camp, students will experience a rapid survey of the public interest field, including nonprofits and government lawyers engaged in critical legal advocacy, and will meet their cohort of like-minded aspiring lawyers at the outset of their studies at Southwestern as part of public interest community building at Southwestern. Students will also receive specialized skills training as part of an early introduction to foundational lawyering skills that will supplement traditional academic programming.
