We know many students arrive at law school set on being public interest lawyers but for whatever reason find themselves in the position of going into private practice. For many of these students, they feel like they've lost a part of their identity, they experience guilt, or they worry they will never be able to integrate their public interest values into their professional lives as lawyers while at a firm. As part of National Pro Bono Week at Denver Law, join a conversation with private firm lawyers who also have a public interest identity and have been able to integrate that part of themselves through pro bono and/or community work.
