This past weekend, 10 Albany Law School students attended the Annual Robert M. Cover Public Interest Law Retreat in New Hampshire.

The retreat gathered public interest law students, professors, and legal workers from around the country to network, socialize, and attend workshops in a beautiful secluded setting. Students had the opportunity to learn from leaders in public interest law about cutting-edge topics like medical-legal partnerships, advocacy outside of the courtroom, postgraduate fellowship opportunities, and forming a public interest organization, covering a wide range of diverse interests.

Albany Law had one of the largest delegations in attendance, in part because each student received a generous scholarship from the local Albany chapter of the National Lawyers Guild to cover the cost of the retreat.

One major purpose of the retreat was to connect like-minded students, practitioners, and legal workers from all over the country to share their expertise and enthusiasm. The Albany Law Student Lawyers Guild is the campus organization that works with the National Lawyers Guild to expose students to these unique opportunities and support the public interest legal community.
