SBF Public Service Fellowships
The SBF helps raise money and distribute funds for student fellowships or travel stipends for law-related public service work with a focus on delivery of legal services to the poor and indigent, law related public education, and improvement of the judiciary, the legal profession, and citizen access to the justice system. Since its inception in 2002, the Student Bar Foundation has distributed funds to students completing public service work at the Legal Aid Societies in Louisville, New Orleans and Cincinnati, the Louisville Center for Women and Families, Whitman Walker Clinic in Washington D.C., and even a project in Rwanda where a student interned with the Gacaca courts that prosecute cases from the genocide.
Central High School Law and Government Magnet Partnership
In 2001, the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law entered into a partnership with Central High School Law and Government Magnet Program with the goal of building the pipeline to a more diverse legal profession in our community. For the first few years, students in Central’s Magnet Program were provided a variety of enrichment activities – moot court competitions, speakers, law school visits –with the goal of “sparking the interest” of students in becoming lawyers. Since 2007, with the supervision of Joe Gutmann, the Law Magnet coordinator at Central, approximately 30 Brandeis law students each year have developed the writing, analytical, and preparation skills of these students by teaching family law, criminal law, civil liberties, and other issues as well as writing and interview skills. Mock courtroom furnishings, computers, and teaching materials are needed to improve the experience for both law students and Central students.
