Public Interest Lawyer Advanced Seminar
The course examines issues of law, practice and theory relating to the work of lawyers in public interest settings. Students, in the course, work in small groups on projects assigned by actual public interest organizations, with supervision from the seminar faculty and from attorneys at those organizations. Course requirements include ongoing presentations regarding the project, a final product for the organization that usually takes the form of a manual or report, and an analytic paper based on the project. The seminar requires a substantial time commitment and a willingness to work in conjunction with other students and lawyers.
