CAREER SERVICES: PUBLIC INTEREST AND PRO BONO

Kathmandu University School of Law wants to be ranked one of the best public interest law schools in the region.

It will endeavour to connect students with short-term and long-term volunteer projects. As volunteers, students can staff client intake clinics, engage in legislative advocacy and policy work, and represent low-income families in a variety of substantive legal areas. The project time commitments are flexible to accommodate the student schedule. For those students looking to do some pro bono work over winter/spring breaks, there will be opportunities available.

The Public Interest Career Counselor maintains a list of current pro bono opportunities. The Public Interest Career Counselor also continually develops new pro bono opportunities. Students can discuss their interest areas, skills and scheduling needs with the Public Interest Career Counselor who will counsel them on the appropriate placement. New opportunities are promoted through workshops, the law school's social media, at all law career services events and via a weekly newsletter. Outstanding pro bono work is recognized at the Public Interest Graduation Reception and on an ongoing basis.
