Winter School for Pro Bono Lawyers
25 June 2001 at 1:06 pm

How do law students cultivate an interest in systems of advocacy and gain exposure to organisations that are directly involved in public interest and pro bono litigation? They go to winter school in NSW.

Students in their final two years of study at the University of Western Sydney (Nepean) and the University of Wollongong are being offered a winter school course in July.

The five-day course on “Practicing in the Public Interest” is being organised by the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) and Public Interest Law Clearing House (PILCH).

The course consists of three days training and two days placement with a law firm that undertakes public interest litigation and has an established pro bono practice.

The course provides a mix of informal lectures, guest lecturers, interactive discussions, case studies, small group exercises, panel and video presentations.

Training Co-ordinator Cathie Sharp says at the end of the programs students should be able to recognise the benefits and uses of public interest litigation and outline a range of strategies which further the practice of public interest law.

Earlier this year PIAC and PILCH ran a Summer School with students from the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales.

For further information about the Winter School contact Cathie Sharp on (02) 9299 7833.
