Announcing the Summer 2012 National Lawyers Guild Haywood Burns Memorial Fellowships for Social and Economic Justice
Haywood Burns Fellowships are designed to encourage students to work in the NLG’s tradition of “people’s lawyering.” The program exists to help students apply their talents and skills to find creative ways to use the law to advance justice. Burns Fellowships provoke law students to question traditional notions of how one must practice law and to provide a summer experience that will enrich and challenge them. For the summer of 2012 the program will offer 5 $2000 fellowships.
Fellowships may be completed with grassroots and non-traditional organizations whose mission addresses the needs of underserved individuals. Examples of prior placements include: Appalachian Citizen Law Center, Asian Law Caucus, Cleveland Works, Disability Rights Advocates, East Bay Community Law Center, Florence Immigrant and Refugee Project, Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, National Police Accountability Project, NJ Farmworker and Low Wage Worker Employment Rights Project, etc.
The application is available here - http://www.nlg.org/law-students/fellowships/ The deadline is January 20, 2012.

"Judges and lawmakers are working to deter patent suits, but you wouldn't know it from the results of the 2011 edition of our annual Patent Litigation Survey. The survey, which ranks law firms according to how many federal district court patent cases they handled in 2010, reveals that the business of patent litigation is booming at many firms. For instance, Fish & Richardson, which took top honors for the eighth year in a row, handled 128 cases in 2010, compared to 99 last year—a 29 percent increase."
