Student Commitment to Public Interest Law at RWU Law Remains High

Posted by David Logan on 02/19/2013 at 04:40 PM

RWU Law is very proud of the pro bono activities of our students, both during the academic year and over summers.  Building on the amazing work of the “Student Hurricane network,” where law students from around the country helped the Gulf Coast rebuild its legal systems post-Hurricane Katrina, RWU Law is now active in “Alternative Spring Break;” instead of kicking back for a week of fun in mid-March, 44 of our students will be fanning out from Massachusetts to Louisiana to help non-profit organizations:

Bronx Defenders 

(Bronx, NY)

Brooklyn Defender Services  

(Brooklyn, NY)

Clean Water Action RI  

(Providence, RI)  

Committee for Public Counsel Services

(Fall River, MA)

Georgia Capital Defenders

(Atlanta, GA)

Immigration Law, Education and Advocacy Project

(Fall River, MA)

Mississippi Center for Justice  

(Biloxi, MS)

SE Louisiana Legal Services

(New Orleans, LA)

Tennessee United Mountain Defense

(Knoxville, TN)

Hurricane Sandy NJ 

(Edison, NJ)

These dedicated students will not only help the organizations, but will get valuable exposure to how the legal system works from a front-line perspective.
