During Kennedy's first summer in law school, he worked for the D.C. Prisoners' Legal Services Project. Kennedy also worked for a public interest firm in New York City and at Washington and Lee he volunteers for many projects, including serving as the University's National Lawyers Guild Chapter President, raising money for AIDS awareness and working with recycling efforts. He has also organized a new campus initiative, "Men of Action," to raise awareness about violence against women.

In Kennedy's nomination letter, the Elizabeth Peck, Director of Career Services, noted that "Only when I pressed did he really let me know just how much work he has done. In a crowded room he is not the first person you spot; he's the guy who is quietly getting the work done while others talk. To honor someone who seeks to do good because it is the right thing to do, rather than because he may be later recognized, seems, to me, the best use of your award."
