Outside of Amnesty:

Many students who go on to Law school got a start with volunteer groups in their undergrad. Once you become a lawyer, you are restricted to practicing in the jurisdictions where you pass the Bar examination, unlike with volunteer groups where you can travel and work in different communities. A Raleigh, NC divorce lawyer is not going to be able to practice family law outside of North Carolina without getting certified to practice law in those areas first.

On a similar note, if you want to practice different types of law, it is common for lawyers to specialize in different fields. If you work in Washington as a Yakima car accident lawyer, it wouldn't be unusual to also work with other personal injury clients. Make sure to explore plenty of options in your law education to see what subjects you might be interested in.

Volunteer organizations all over the world take part in volunteer projects that help benefit communities. Often times, this involves digging a well, building a bridge or even transporting industrial embroidery equipment to a new area for the local community to share. Many students find it very fulfilling to volunteer and give their time and effort to a greater cause.

Amnesty groups often travel to different areas of the world to do charity work for their respective cause. As such, they use a variety of different online resources to book the lowest priced airline tickets and travel accommodations. For Amnesty groups, it is very important to save money, so they can use these additional funds to help others.

Students who have done volunteer work or worked abroad have a different perspective to bring when they enter the workforce. That is why some of the best executive search firms like to have employees who have formally worked in the volunteer work force. Students working within some of these groups, might have an advantage in finding employment with retained executive search techniques.
