Would anyone currently at NSl be interested in forming a legal aid society under direction of TBA?

You mean just to have speakers come and such? That would be good! What are you thinking of the society doing?

Speakers, field trips, assisting the indigent under supervision of TBA attorneys, etc.  The TBA has expressed a desire to assist in forming this but the school does not seem that interested.  I dont know whether to push it or not.

Becky Rhodes, Access to Justice Coordinator for TBA, told me that Patti Garner is the student rep for TBA at NSL.
