The New 2013 Public Policy Handbook Now Online

Touro Law Center subscribes to the University of Arizona College of Law's Public Policy Handbook, a valuable resource for those interested in careers in the field of public policy. The Handbook is still growing, and currently contains information about hundreds of employers who are offering internships and post-graduate fellowships. In addition to opportunities in the DC area and New York City (where a majority of public policy organizations are headquartered), the Handbook has expanded into 25 other states.

To access the Handbook, go here.

We are prohibited from placing the ID and password for access to the Handbook online. Go to the homepage of Jacob, Touro Law Center's Symplicity website, for this information.

Equal Justice Works Summer Corps is a Great Opportunity

The Equal Justice Works Summer Corps Program provides law students with the chance to spend their summer working on a legal project at a qualifying nonprofit public interest organization of their choosing. Summer Corps members expand the delivery of critically needed legal assistance in low-income and underserved communities across the country for veterans, homeowners facing foreclosure, disaster victims, and those facing other legal issues. Summer Corps is an AmeriCorps-funded program that will provide law students with the opportunity to earn a Legal AmeriCorps Education Award for dedicating their summer to a qualifying legal project at a nonprofit public interest organization. A Summer Corps applicant must be a current student at an Equal Justice Works member law school, such as Touro. Summer Corps Members may serve at a variety of organizations. to learn more about the Summer Corps and how to apply, go here.
