Earlier this month, 25 law students embarked on a volunteer trip to New Orleans, La., where they participated in a full week of unpaid legal work as part of an alternative spring break. Organized by the law student organization Public Interest Law Council, approximately 1,000 pro bono hours of assistance were provided in legal settings aiding underprivileged communities in the New Orleans area. Worksites included the Orleans Public Defenders, Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, the Louisiana Center for Children's Rights, the Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana and the Innocence Project New Orleans.
