Congrats to the Drexel's Jessup Moot Court Team
Many of you already know already, but I just wanted to share the huge success of Drexel's Jessup moot court team (Krysten Connon, Eddie Grant, Melissa Green & Bharka Patel). The team WON (yes, won!) the Mid-Atlantic Super Regional this weekend to advance to the international round at the end of March.
They were incredibly strong, easily winning every match in the preliminaries and finishing in second place going into the final rounds, where they all competed and won. After Melissa & Krysten won the quarterfinal round against Baltimore, the team opted to have Eddie & Barkha compete in the semi-final against George Mason. Melissa & Krysten then competed again in the final round, edging the University of Virginia for the championship. The team also got a 5th place award for their briefs and Melissa won 2nd place overall Oralist.

Public Interest Experience Grants
Public Interest Experience Grants provide stipends to Earle Mack School of Law students who are taking unpaid, summer public interest positions. These students are committed to the public interest and intend to pursue a public interest career after law school. The purpose of the grant is to offset the cost of living for students who incur significant financial burden by taking an unpaid position for the summer. It is our hope that students will gain invaluable experience, skills, contacts, and insight to further enable them to find employment after law school in the competitive practice of public interest law.
Both 1L and 2L students are eligible to apply. A brief information session will be held on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 12:00pm in room 420. The 2012 PIE Grant Application Packed can be downloaded in PDF format here: http://www.earlemacklaw.drexel.edu/career/students/pubinterestlaw/pubinterest_summer_grants/ All applications must be submitted by 12:00pm on Friday, March 30.

Mr. Cawley is also a Professor of Administrative Law at Widener University School of Law. In “Career Advice form a Legal Vagrant", Mr. Cawley will speak about his distinguished career with an aim toward providing career advice to law students interested in entering the public sector, especially government.

In 1942, Fred Korematsu was an average 23-year-old California native working as a shipyard welder. But when he refused to obey Executive Order 9006, which sent 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry into internment camps, he became something extraordinary--a civil rights champion. Award-winning director, Eric Paul Fournier, follows Korematsu’s story from the moment he first resisted confinement, to the hard-won victory he finally achieved 39 years later with the help of a new generation of Japanese-American activists seeking vindication and the assurance that such a terrible injustice would never occur again.
