Under the previous standard, students were
barred from receiving compensation for field placements. There
have been many arguments for and against this issue. Some argue that allowing
credit for paid externships is particularly valuable for poor students and
others who may be having difficulty in making ends meet.
in the midst of one of the most exciting and terrifying times in history. People
are going to look back and question our generation’s actions in this Presidential
Election, the economic recession, the refugee crisis, police and community
relations, terrorist attacks, climate change and much more. As law students, we
are in a unique position to make a difference now even if we do not have the
money or resources.
As a student interested
in international environmental law, when I got an email from my school asking
if I would like to participate in motion drafting for the International Union
for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation
Congress (WCC), I jumped on board. Little did I know at the
time, how large of a role I would have as a law student.
On behalf of our Section, I am excited to welcome
you as new members of the Young Lawyers Section. With over 10,000 law students
in the State of New York we look forward to making sure we provide services
that are valuable to you as you pursue your legal career.
