What is Work-A-Day?

Each year, the Division’s Committee on Public Interest coordinates a Work-A-Day Program and toolkit. The Work-A-Day usually occurs in early October.


Law Students Fighting Homelessness: Project H.E.L.P. 

Law schools and students are encouraged to create activities and events during the school year to address the legal needs and education of the homeless community. The Law Student Division provides this Tool Kit to help get you started, but please feel free to be creative in designing programs that target specific issues in your community.

This program is a meaningful way for law students to give back to the community and raise awareness about important issues in our society and the legal system. The Law Student Division encourages all students and schools to get involved by implementing a Work-A-Day initiative this October. Your community will be all the better for it.
