Those who have attended past
Outreach programs know the value
of these meetings with lawyers who
have implemented the projects your
affiliate is interested in. The practical
how to do it tips and ideas can add
greatly to the success of any local
project. These meetings are especial-
ly important for affiliates that have
been inactive or are just being estab-
lished. The panel presentations will
give you the information and ideas
you need to start a project, and the
chance to meet with lawyers from

across the nation who are involved in
similar activities and will give you
the enthusiasm to see the project
through to a successful result.
Affiliate Outreach Director Car-
olyn Lamm reports that this year's
format has been improved as a result
of comments and suggestions from
past participants. The program will
focus on project panel presentations
in four main areas: Law Reform, Edu-
cation, Delivery of Legal Services
and Community Service. The panels
feature young lawyers from across
the country who have worked on
projects in their local communities.
Following each panel presentation,
speakers will join small groups of rep-
resentatives from similarly sized af-
filiates to discuss the projects and
share ideas.
A highlight of the one and one
half day program will be Outreach
Expo booths manned by young law-

yers offering resource materials and
expertise on nearly a dozen add ition-
al projects.
A number of new project ideas will
be introduced at the meeting. Robert
Geltzer of New York, NY, will discuss
plans for a nationwide Consumer
Law Day, and a special speaker from
Ralph Nader's Public Citizen, Inc.
will present information on how affil-
iates can become involved in a new
project in the area of Public Interest
Law being developed by that organ-
ization.
David Watkins of Jackson, MS,
Chairperson of the Town Hall Project
will present information on a new se-
ries of grants of up to $1,500 to assist
from four to six affiliates to defray
the expenses of holding a local
Town Hall Meeting on issues of
public interest.
