Good Luck to the 2010-11 Law Brigades Team as They Venture Down to Panama

On Monday, March 29, Hofstra Law students will venture down to Panama to work with disadvantaged communities to develop and implement legal empowerment strategies alongside Panamanian legal professionals. The Hofstra students will be spending time in both the urban and rural regions. In Panama City, the students will focus on business licensing. In Cocle, students will learn organic and fair trade certification procedures and organize community workshops on alternative dispute resolution.

Law Brigades is one of Hofstra Law’s newest student organizations. Vivienne Nguyen is the current president and founder of Law Brigades at Hofstra Law and Professor Serge Martinez advises the organization.

The Hofstra students are excited to be furthering the public interest spirit of the law school and are currently fundraising for this trip and for the sustainability of the program for future Hofstra law students.Any support would be greatly appreciated.
