The ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty is seeking motivated law student interns to apply for stipends available for the Summer 2014 Program.
The Program will pay a $2,500 stipend to three law school students who spend the summer months working for a bar association or legal services program designed to prevent homelessness or assist homeless or indigent clients or their advocates. The Legal Internship Program will provide much-needed legal assistance to organizations serving the under-represented and give students direct experience in a public interest forum. Through this, it aims both to help homeless clients and to encourage careers in the law that further the goals of social justice. Students must already have a position offered, contingent on funding, from a qualified organization.
This fellowship is open to all law students and first year law students are encouraged to apply.
All applications must be received by Monday, March 31, 2014. Early submissions are welcome. The complete application can be found here. For more information about this fellowship, visit the website at: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/public_services/homelessness_poverty/john_j_curtin_jr_fellowship1.html.
“In the interest of full disclosure, I bleed Big Ten, with rooting interests from as early as I have memories. So while I remember the contra-legacy of the “Big Two-Little Eight” I admit the bias of finding any spin to prop up the conference of my youth.
“And admittedly I am hemorrhaging more this year that usual. I can, for example distinguish and lessen the conference pain from the former era. It was a time when only one Big Ten team was bowl bound to the Rose Bowl. So the battle between Ohio State and Michigan was not so painful to the other teams that had lesser expectations and even fewer opportunities to unseat the twosome. But as times changes, so do perceptions.”

Rod Sullivan, a law professor at Florida Coastal School of Law, said attorneys who represent clients with a gambling interest need to be concerned their advice may now cause them great exposure.
Defense attorney Mitch Stone called the potential precedent set by the case “very disturbing.”
Mathis agreed, saying, “Attorneys are on trial in this case. And attorneys all over the nation need to be very afraid when six years after you give legal advice, somebody disagrees with that legal advice and they can convict you of a crime.”
Sullivan said when the Internet cafes surfaced, he spent time researching the issue. The cafes sold Internet time and gave away sweepstakes entries that had to be checked on machines that resembled slot machines.
Sullivan said he determined the businesses “may fall under the exception for sweepstakes.”
“My impression was that this is very much an unsettled area of the law,” he said.

“Their best legal option is to contact the landlord that leased the property because the landlord has the obligation to allow customers to pick up the property that’s in the leased premises,” said Rod Sullivan, a law professor at Florida Coastal School of Law. “Because it doesn’t belong to the tenant and they have to give them at least ten days to come by to pick up their clothing, and I think most reasonable landlords will give even more time than that.”
