Students, Legal Providers Mix at Public Interest Legal Expo

Public Interest Legal ExpoRepresentatives of more than 25 community legal services providers, nonprofits and governmental agencies networked with students in the Form at the University of New Mexico School of Law for the Public Interest Legal Expo in late February.

During the lunchtime event, UNM law students shared resumes with the participants and learned about a broad variety of opportunities as paid employees, externs and volunteers.

“We wanted to bring together service providers for the community and students to meet the needs of our legal community,” said Catherine Price (`12), former president of the Association of Public interest Law, the event’s organizer. “There was a lot of networking and many connections being made. Hopefully this will result in students finding jobs, building their resumes and becoming active in the legal community.”
