NAPIL's 2001Student Leadership Retreat
March 9-11, 2001
at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas
The annual Student Leadership Retreat is designed to train and energize public interest law students who are helping to build their public interest organization. It is an intimate retreat where students have continuous interaction with similarly committed law school students, learn from one another, and receive training from professional media consultants and fundraisers, NAPIL staff, and successful student fundraisers. Travel assistance is STILL available through NAPIL, but you must act quickly! Pre-register and get logistical information sent to you. Please see the NAPIL website for more details: www.napil.org.

WELCOME NEW kjf BOARD MEMBERS!

KJF is committed to increasing the awareness of students, faculty, alumni
and administrators to the rewards, challenges, and opportunities in public
interest law projects through financial support, educational programs,
community outreach, and other ongoing efforts necessary to fulfill its
goals. KJF is dedicated to the principle that law students should
be encouraged to work in the public interest and that no student who wants
to work at a summer public interest law job should be unable to do so for
Throughout the year, KJF sponsors major fundraising events. We have bake

KJF and SOS?
So what is the difference between KJF and SOS, you ask? KJF's mission is
to raise money for our Summer Fellowships and to foster an interest in
public interest law. SOS seeks to foster that same interest, but also realizes
that lots of people cannot fully commit themselves to a career in public
interest. Lots of students seek volunteer work, either legal or non-legal,
for both continual commitments and one-time volunteer opportunities. That's
where SOS can help. If you know you want to do volunteer work with
battered women, we can help put you in touch with organizations that work
with domestic violence victims. If you want to participate in a walk-a-thon,
we can help get you the information you need. The amount of time
you put in is entirely up to you. You can do one day a month, one
day a year or one day a week--it's entirely up to you and your schedule.
If you have any questions about either KJF or SOS, please email Melanie Maron (MMARON@kentlaw.edu) for more information.
