Update on Law Students Volunteering in Post-Katrina Gulf Coast

Excellent story this week in Tulane University's on-line magazine The New Wave, on volunteerism andNewwave professional responsibility in action.  The story is called Law Students Storm New Orleans With Legal Aid.  Lots of different legal aid and lobbying organizations, in addition to the Student Hurricane Network we noted here and here, are discussed.  (We noted here the recent but reversible threat to out-of-state volunteerism by one judge's actions.) 

Students and lawyers from all over the USA have spent spring break and other times helping out the legal needs of Louisiana and Mississippi clients.  The SHN website alone tallies over 1000 volunteers in the last two months, and provides great links to 8 schools' blogs on their experiences, including USC, Indiana-Bloomington, Brooklyn, UW, and Cardozo.  Like this one from IU.  Keep up the good work!  [Alan Childress]
