One of the greatest strengths of Social Justice Initiatives at Columbia Law School is the breadth and depth of our public interest alumni community. Columbia Law School graduates work around the country and across the globe in nonprofits, NGOs, government, academia, at public interest law firms, and doing substantial pro bono and community service.
Stay Connected: The Social Justice Network
The Social Justice Network is an online database and networking tool that allows you to connect with Columbia Law School public interest and government grads according to field of specialty, practice area, organization type, class year, geographic location, and more. Social Justice Initiatives will use the SJN to inform members about employment opportunities and events that may be of particular interest to them. Columbia students, faculty and staff will use it to reach out to graduates of interest.
The SJN offers its members a number of personalized features. You can select which populations (current students, grads, faculty, etc.) will be able to see your profile and contact you. The employment sections allow you to provide detailed descriptions of your current and past work that will be searchable by keyword by other members. And in order to maintain privacy, all email contact is done via a built-in email tool (no contact information is displayed in the member profiles).
