LexisNexis has announced a program of free access for new associates whose law firm positions have been deferred.
The Associates Serving Public Interests Research program, or ASPIRE, gives graduates complimentary access to federal and state case law, codes, regulations and law reviews. The idea is to give law school grads resources to effectively support their non-profit and public interest work.
Online training and other training materials will also be provided.
Any graduate accepted as an associate at a professional law firm whose start date has been deferred, and who has elected to pursue non-profit work during their deferral period, is eligible to participate in the program.
