Cornell Law School/Peace Corps Lawyers in Africa Program

Cornell Law School conducts a pilot program with the Peace Corps and the University of Zambia that provides recent Cornell Law School graduates the opportunity to teach law at the University of Zambia under the auspices of the Peace Corps. The program was created by the tireless Professor Robert Kent (Emeritus), who served as the dean of the University of Zambia Law School in the 1960s. Beginning in 1997, and every two years thereafter, Cornell has sent a team of two alumni to Zambia to participate in the program for two-year periods. In addition to their teaching duties, the alumni have worked to establish and maintain the Zambia Legal Information Institute, the first comprehensive digital law collection in southern Africa, with assistance from Professor Peter Martin and the Cornell Legal Information Institute. Based on the success of the program Cornell plans to expand the Peace Corps program to other African schools in the coming years.

From what I hear they have a rather good law school, especially in the area I'm interested in "American Indian law." Also, does anyone know that if it's true that if you attend law school in Wisconsin you do not have to take the bar in Wisconsin?

Unless you have some special circumstance to seperate you from the pack (i.e. best friends with the admissions officer, friends in high places, worked in a 5th world country, etc), I do not see those scores as acceptable for the schools you mentioned.  You can always pick one to apply to as a "dream'" school, but for the most part you will just be wasting money.  So, to answer your question nothing is impossible, but in this case just highly unlikely.

When did you take your Kaplan course?  What area were you most lacking in? Sorry about your score, there is always the opportunity to retake it.

Tulane and Emory you should be in, not sure about the others.  UW-Madison - you should be in.


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The American Bar Association on Monday narrowly passed a controversial proposal that will allow lawyers to pierce sacred attorney-client secrecy rules to help stop financial crimes.


In a 218 to 201 vote, the ABA's policy-making body amended its ethics code to allow, but not require, lawyers to breach attorney-client privilege if they believe doing so would stop a client from committing a financial crime or fraud.

Thanks, I will have to take a look in the Journal section of the library in Sept.
