Public Interest Law Jobs
The Public Interest Law Jobs are about the protection of interest that is shared by the entire public or a significant part of the public. The issues and the clients who handle the public interest law deal with different things of the public concern that include the domestic violence, child welfare, environmental protection and illegal discrimination.

The public service practice requires the person to work in the law reform or in the government. It involves charities, public international organization, educational, private law and interest law firm who work as pro bono. The person can work as a public defender, federal government office and nonprofit organization. The people who work in this career want to get the satisfaction above anything else. This is especially for the people who do not like to be involved into the jobs that need them to go to court. It is easy to find the job in the private sector or public sector. The person can get involved in impact litigation, community outreach and administrative advocacy.

People, who want to work in the public interest, may choose different areas. Legal services organization is meant to help people with legal services for the families who are in the civil matters or who need to work in the litigation or transactional work. Such organizations can be compared to the public defenders, but the only difference is that public defenders help with criminal matters. The legal issues attorneys do help people who are involved into immigration issues, predatory lending, bankruptcy and housing discrimination.

People in advocacy organization work with regulations and legislation, they work towards the system change as legal service attorneys or public defenders. The policy is about the insight in the issues which may affect the underrepresented group.

Public defender officer gives the representation in the criminal cases and for the clients who are not able to pay for such counsel. The public defender officer may be funded by a non-profit organization. The public defenders may represent the clients in the legal process and other phases. State attorney general and prosecutor offices: they work for the solicitors and prosecutor in the public interest law. The department of the justice also may include the divisions for the violation of the civil rights. The legal staff can work with organizations and government entities. The government entities are at the federal level and they do have the in-house legal staff who enforces the regulations and the laws. Larger firms also can get involved into the public interest job by becoming the pro-bono. Certain firms also may encourage the attorneys in volunteering the time for the non-legal pro bono work.
