PSJD Public Interest News Digest – November 3, 2017

Sam Halpert, NALP Director of Public Service Initiatives

Hello there, interested public! I hope everyone had a good National Pro Bono Week last week–there was lots to do here in DC, including the NALP/PSJD Public Service Mini-Conference and the Equal Justice Works Career Fair. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend, and especially to those of you who contributed to the week’s programming.

Now, let’s catch up on the news. Highlights include a Harvard Law Record report causing a stir at Harvard and more broadly about the legal academy’s proper role in society and ongoing dramas concerning student debt policy, cash bail in California, and public defenders’ responsibilities in Missouri.

Until next week,
Sam
