About

Welcome to “Common Good,”  a UW Center for Public Service Law 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 Mission for Center for Public Service Law is to create a culture at UW Law where students, faculty and staff are inspired and empowered to make public service and equal justice an integral feature of their professional lives.

The Center’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 Center for Public Service Law website.

Center for Public Service Law Staff will post to the Common Good blog at least three times per week according to the following schedule: Jobs on Mondays, Announcements on Wednesdays, and Events on Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays will be reserved for time sensitive announcements and updates.

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.

The UW Law Center for Public Service is excited to offer this online creative space for sharing public service law news and information. Please visit the blog regularly.
