22nd Annual Robert M. Cover Retreat, Feb. 27-Mar. 1, 2009

SALT's Robert M. Cover Retreat (see also ereis Feb. 27-Mar. 1, 2009, at the Sargent Center in Peterborough, NH.  Here is a letter from the organizer.  The overview of the conference is below:

Every year, public interest law students, professors, and practitioners from the Eastern, Mid-Eastern, and Southern United States gather together at the Robert M. Cover Public Interest Law Retreat to network, strategize, and socialize in a beautiful, secluded setting.

The retreat brings to life the vision of Robert Cover, a Yale Law School professor and social change activist. Cover’s vision encompassed four principal goals: 1) to connect students with common goals and interests from across the country; 2) to create a network of professors, peers, and practitioners for students headed toward careers in public interest; 3) to provide a forum for discussions about change and growth pertaining to public interest law; and 4) to provide a platform for change in the public interest sector and perceptions about public interest law.   

For more information about the 2009 Retreat, contact:  Heidi M. Pushard, University of Maine School of Law, heidi.pushard@maine.edu.
