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.
