October is Public Interest Month

If you’re interested in public interest and government careers, then October is the month for you! For the fourth year in a row, the CDO is hosting Public Interest Month throughout October. With the big OCI and Early Interview Week push, it can feel like August and September are all about big firms so October is devoted to public interest. Public interest minded 2Ls will feel supported and will have the chance to hear from alumni working in public interest while 1Ls will have the chance to explore different career paths. Please note that all GALILEE participants are required to attend at least two Public Interest Month events apart from this Friday’s presentation.

What does Public Interest Month mean?

Throughout the month of October, the CDO is co-sponsoring with several student organizations to bring in attorneys from a wide variety of backgrounds to speak on-campus. The initiative will feature eleven attorney panels throughout the month of October featuring topics ranging from lawyer and law student wellness in public interest, careers in national security and the FBI, becoming a military lawyer, diversity in public interest, DOJ careers, and many more.

You can see the full lineup of events below and on the Notre Dame events page.

All Public Interest Month events are open to RSVPs and you can RSVP here. Lunch will be provided at all events so please RSVP soon so we can be sure to have enough food.



We look forward to seeing you at Public Interest Month events throughout October and we are confident that you will get the chance to learn more about exciting careers in public interest, local, state, and federal government!
