Capital Commendation for Public Service

Pacific McGeorge students are recognized for their work on behalf of the local community, from getting involved in activities and events to assisting with pro bono legal services. Public service hours should be unpaid, not for academic credit and approved by the program director.

Capital Commendation students receive a certificate for their achievement, a special notation in the commencement program and recognition at the annual senior luncheon. The commendation is awarded at the following levels:

  • Admirable Commitment (50 hours)
  • Superior Commitment (100 hours)
  • Extraordinary Commitment (150 hours)

Students may find opportunities get involved in through:

  • Public interest organizations
  • Public Legal Services Society (PLSS), a student organization that supports public legal service activities.
  • Other non-legal community service like local clean-up events, service nights and annual events.
