The PSJD Firms Allowing Split Public Interest Summer Options includes a few law firms that have programs that enable law students to work for part of the summer with the firm, and part of the summer with a public interest organization. Some of the firms will pay all or part of the students’ salaries for the entire summer. These programs provide an opportunity for a diverse summer experience and demonstrate a firm’s strong commitment to pro bono work. There are a few variations of the split public interest summer.
