A few law firms around the country are making it easier to do summer public interest work through a variety of programs that pay law students out of the firms' pockets to work at nonprofit organizations.

One such program can be found in Pittsburgh in Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham's U.S. K&LNG Public Interest Fellowship, which pays up to three law students every summer $1,000 per week to work at one of four Pittsburgh area nonprofits for up to four weeks. The fellowships can be combined with a summer-associate position at K&LNG (the applications are separate), work at another firm, or stretched to cover a whole summer of pro bono work.

The K&LNG fellowship, in short, expands the possibilities for a few law students and what they do for their summers, and possibly for their careers.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
