27th Annual Robert M. Cover Retreat
Lawyering for Civil Rights in the 21st Century
February 28 - March 2, 2014
Sargent Center, Peterborough, NH
The Robert M. Cover Retreat brings together law students, academics and practitioners committed to public interest to share their experiences, educate on the complexities and nuances of public interest law, network and reinvigorate their commitment to this important work. Attendees travel from the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast United States to Peterborough, New Hampshire each year for a weekend filled with exciting discussions, interesting topics, and opportunities to relax and enjoy some time away from the law school environment.
The retreat brings to life the vision of Robert Cover, a Yale Law School professor and social change activist. Cover’s vision encompassed four principal goals:
1. Connecting students with common goals and interests from across the country;
2. Creating a network of professors, peers, and practitioners for students headed toward careers in public interest;
3. Providing a forum for discussions about change and growth pertaining to public interest law; and
4. Providing a platform for change in the public interest sector and perceptions about public interest law.
The 2014 registration cost is $160 and includes retreat fees, lodging, and all meals/food.
