Smaller cities, towns, and rural areas across the United States are underserved by public interest lawyers. New law graduates may hesitate to work in communities far from metropolitan hubs. Public interest lawyers Stephen Bright and Sia Sanneh, and Liman Director Anna VanCleave, will talk about how students can build a public interest career in places that they may not have considered – and why they should.
