The Legal Services Corporation
Announces "Quality Initiative" to
Encourage Public Interest Careers

Karen J. Sarjeant, Vice President for Programs and Compliance of the Legal Services Corporation in Washington, D.C., has written a terrific article in the July 2007 issue of the NALP Bulletin entitled, "Working to Encourage Public Interest Careers with Legal Services Corporation Programs: The LSC Quality Initiative."

Although NALP does not often allow Bulletin articles to be published beyond its membership, we received special permission from NALP to reproduce the article here.

Any student or alum who is considering a career in public interest should read Ms. Serjeant's article, which addresses recruitment, retention, loan assistance, professional development, diversity, mentors, and other important issues that can make a public interest career successful.
