At Cincinnati Law, your service matters. Since 1997, Cincinnati Law students have provided almost 10,000 hours of law-related service in the Greater Cincinnati community.
In addition, if you perform 15 or more hours of volunteer legal work, you will receive an official notation on your transcript. By volunteering, you fill a void that would otherwise exist in our community and help extend the impact of many organizations that make an impact in our region. At the same time, you'll gain hands-on experience conveying legal concepts to the public as well as developing client relations skills.
Cincinnati Law's Center for Professional Development can help facilitate your volunteer efforts. Check out the list below for a sampling of the organizations where Cincinnati Law students like you can provide assistance and make an impact.

Make a Difference While Interviewing
You can support legal services for underrepresented populations while you travel to interview for jobs. Yes, it's true. When you are called back for an interview (because of course you will be called back for an interview), choose to stay with friends or family instead of a hotel, then ask your prospective employer to donate the lodging cost to the Public Interest Law Group (PILG). See Cincinnati Law's Public Service Coordinator & Counselor to learn how you can make a difference.
