Community Engagement

I pretty much worked my entire law school career to help indigent clients--and I've done it in a courtroom. Doing all this has solidfied that this is what I want to do. I made sure that I went to a school that had some sort of hands-on experience. Brandeis, with the fellowships that they have and the public service opportunities, , has really offered that experience.--Emily Meador, Class of 2016

The University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is committed to training thoughtful, civic-minded lawyers who play active roles in their communities.

This commitment was exemplified when Brandeis Law became one of the first five law schools in the country to adopt a public service requirement into the standard curriculum. In order to graduate, students are required to perform a minimum of 30 hours of law-related public service. Each year, Brandeis students donate more than 4,000 hours of legal assistance to local, state and national communities.
