About

Welcome to “Common Good,”  the William H. Gates Public Service Law (Gates PSL) Program blog featuring up-to-date information on public service law opportunities for UW Law students, faculty, staff, and alumni. (Photo courtesy of Jack Storms.)

The Gates PSL’s Common Good blog features programming, opportunities, and connections to help UW Law students and graduates realize its vision of Generous Public Service.

As a clearinghouse for inspiring public service law information, Common Good will keep the public service law community up to date on important announcements, conference information, events, jobs, and pro bono opportunities. The blog posts will sync with weekly list-serve e-mail updates and will highlight special content from the Gates Public Service Law Program website.

Gates Public Service Law Staff will post to the Common Good blog at least two times per week according to the following schedule: Jobs on Wednesdays, Announcements and Events on Fridays.

Eventually, the blog will also feature original posts by UW Law students, staff, and faculty engaged in public service work, as well as select photos and videos. If you would like to post a public service law related event or service opportunity to this blog, please send us an e-mail with your request.
