Exclusive: Application Fee Waiver for Public Interest Law Program!

Law School Expert Blog

This is a Law School Expert exclusive! If you are committed to working in the public interest and you want to attend a law school that supports that endeavor with innovative programs, proactive placement in job opportunities, and a generous scholarship, my alma mater (The University of Miami School of Law) might be the perfect place for you.

The program includes mentoring sessions with upper-class scholars and public interest lawyers, monthly meetings, and individualized course advising and career planning. In addition, Miami Scholars are awarded a partial (significant!) scholarship. Marni Lennon, Assistant Dean for Public Interest and Pro Bono, Lecturer in Law, runs the program and told me this morning that they are looking for dedicated public interest folks with top academic credentials.

“Our Miami Scholars are top students from across the nation who bring with them extraordinary experiences and a passion for advocacy and justice. They are leaders in and out of the classroom and are supported by a team of four lawyers at the HOPE Public Interest Resource Center, which was named the ABA Public Interest Program of the year in 2011. ” said Dean Lennon.
While the Miami Law Scholars website says the deadline officially passed on January 6th, we have an extension for Law School Expert readers. THE EXTENDED DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 1 and Miami is offering a fee waiver to the first ten people who apply based on this blog post! To get the fee waiver, email Therese Lambert, Director of Student Recruiting, at tlambert@law.miami.edu and mention the Law School Expert blog.
You can read more about this opportunity at the Miami Scholars website.
