Students Spend Spring Break Working on Pro Bono Cases

Summer 2009

In March, about 60 Law School students completed pro bono work in cities from San Juan to Seattle for the Spring Break Caravans program. The students, who were selected from hundreds of applicants, assisted practicing lawyers in cases involving everything from indigent public defense to death penalty litigation. A subset of participants also joined the Student Hurricane Network to help Gulf Coast communities.

The Spring Break Caravans program is sponsored by Simpson Thacher & Bartlett andorganized by the Law School’s Criminal Justice Action Network.
