The Public Interest Research Bureau is hosting an information session (and will be accepting applications) this week. The Bureau accepts real-life legal issues from legal aid organizations throughout the Southeast. Students are then selected to be part of a team that will research the issue and prepare a detailed memoranda responding to the issue. This work then gets used by the legal aid organization in legal pleadings as well as court hearings, and truly impacts the outcomes of legal aid cases. The Public Interest Research Bureau is a fabulous way for students to gain legal research and writing experience while also learning to work with a team of other students and a faculty supervisor.
Join members of the Public Interest Research Bureau to learn more about what they do and how you can be a part of this rewarding organization. Make a difference in the lives of the poor, develop critical legal skills, and acquire essential writing and research experience. An information session will be held Thursday, March 21st at noon, in Room 250. During the sessions, you will learn how to become a member of the Research Bureau. Applications will also be distributed. If you have any questions, please contact Brandy Natalzia at Brandy.Natalzia@law.fcsl.edu.
