Law School Students Reach Out to People at the Library
On Saturday, November 11 from 9:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m., law students from the UW Public Interest Law Foundation will be available at the Central Library with information about general legal issues.
The law students can 1) provide basic information about the law (common concerns brought up at these table sessions are landlord/tenant, unemployment and family law) and 2) find a referral for a lawyer or an agency that specializes in the appropriate area. The students can not provide opinions or advice as to what people should do in their situation or provide actual representation in court.
The University of Wisconsin Law School’s Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) is a student run organization committed to supporting law students who want to work in public interest law.
