The Rural Summer Legal Corps connects passionate public interest law students with civil legal aid organizations to address pressing legal issues facing rural and isolated communities. The program, a partnership between Equal Justice Works and Legal Services Corporation, begins with extensive training that prepares law students for the challenges of serving rural clients, including how to conduct effective outreach and innovative ways to meet with clients living in remote areas. Listen to 2018 Student Fellow Caitlyn McDaniel describe the value of the program and the importance of pursuing wide-ranging service experiences while still in law school.
