Join ALSA, SJI, and other members of CLS for a film exploring the intersection of race and law in New York. The Central Park Five is the story of five Black and Latino teenagers falsely accused and wrongfully imprisoned for raping a white woman. This was not 1955 in Mississippi. This was 1989 in Manhattan. We will be joined by the film’s directors as well as one of the exonerated men.

Welcome to ALSA’s website. Please check our pages for additional information and opportunities.

Law students are expected to meet deadlines and time requirements just the same as lawyers or judges in real courts. So make sure your pc has backup protection to ensure you don’t lose any important files or programs. With all of the programs available, you shouldn’t have any excuse for losing files.

Being a lawyer is a full-time profession and as such, most lawyers find themselves hiring out for specific services. If you are tight on time, where do you go to get good customer reviews on professionals? Look to MyReviewsNow.net to give you a social media interaction for information on the best services on the web.

Law students have excellent opportunities for employment once they graduate. Even with the current economy, law firms aren’t the only people hiring. An executive job search might put you in touch with headhunters working for corporations who are also hiring lawyers.

Law students will know that there are many different kind of lawyers conducting services for all kinds of people. There are patent lawyers who might work on new designs for industrial linear motion systems and linear slides. And then there are prosecution attorneys that represent their legal jurisdiction, it’s important to know which kind of lawyer you want to become.

Law students in New York often are able to get internships with political groups in Washington
DC. If you find yourself looking for accommodations, Roomorama has the best short term rentals Washington DC can offer. Look for yours the next time your stopping by the nation’s capital.
