Saturday, September 7th, 9:00 a.m. Day of Service

At Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, we believe that it is important not only to cultivate a sense of community here at the law school but also to be active members in the greater community of Chicago. The Public Interest Center and Student Effort to Rejuvenate Volunteering (SERV), a student service organization on campus, believe that we can build a stronger community through public service and they are planning many exciting volunteer opportunities to start off your orientation to Northwestern and the city of Chicago.

On Saturday, September 7th, you have the option of volunteering for a morning or afternoon services project. There is also one event that will take place on Sunday, September 8th, for those who are unable to volunteer on Saturday. Details will be provided to you. Please view the locations and select a site you would like to attend here.
