The University of Memphis Law School Alternative Spring Break

The University of Memphis Law School Alternative Spring Break


So then city level. I did alternative spring
break because I think part of being an advocate is advocating for those who do not have access.
I met so many great people from all around the country. I have learned here how we can
help the community just doing pro bono work. That instilled in me sort of a strong interest
in public interest. Total cost recovery. THE ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK PROGRAM AT THE CECIL

FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO HELP THE MEMPHIS COMMUNITY IN MANY DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE LAW.
They dedicate themselves for an entire week to come here to Memphis, and actually assist
those that are under represented and underserved in the legal community get core legal services
that they would otherwise be unable to get. I see the potential that this community has,
and there is nobody better to bring that potential out than students. This years focus is on
building community, we have focused heavily on reducing blight in the community, dedicated
our research writing track in fact to just that topic. Persons in violations of the sections
of this chapter. IN ADDITION, THERE ARE SIX OTHER TRACKS THAT STUDENTS CAN CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE
IN: FAMILY LAW, ADVANCED DIRECTIVES FOR THE ELDERLY, CRIMINAL DEFENSE AND CIVIL RIGHTS

find the research, go do the research, find the cases, find a statute that helps with
it, but here it is looking at all the differentiating statutes and how they compare to each other,
and so I think that has definitely been the most interesting factor. You can work. Just
talking to the clients, you know, hearing their issues and how we can help them, and
how grateful they are that, you know, we are able to help them navigate through a complicated
process that, you know, they would either have to pay someone lots of money to do, or
they just would not do it. Fourteen eight thirteen. We are strong believers here at
University of Memphis, and as part of the Public Action Law Society, that it takes a
village, it takes the commitment of students to improve their community, and so by participating
in Alternative Spring Break we hope that students will be instilled with the passion for public
service. We just have to do that as like a fourteen. THE LAW STUDENTS ONLY SPEND A WEEK
IN MEMPHIS, BUT THE EXPERIENCE LASTS A LIFETIME. They gave us a week off of school for a reason,
its not just to go out and have fun its to go help things and help people and see the
world, so I got to do all three of those things here at Alternative Spring Break. It is amazing,
you know, being able to help somebody, you know, change their life. We get caught up
just reading the books and, you know, studying for exams and we forget why we are doing this
you know what can we do with our education, and this just gives us an opportunity to see
that you know how we help people. Once we hit the books again, we can remember, oh this
is why I am doing it. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN USE YOUR LAW SCHOOL SPRING
