While many YLS graduates land on the coasts or in major metropolitan areas,  many have thrived in other locations, like upstate New York, the South, the Midwest, and rural areas across the United States. Public interest lawyers Stephen Bright and Sia Sanneh and Liman Director Anna VanCleave will talk about how to build public interest careers in places that students  may not have considered – and why they should do so.
