ASPIRE: Help for Law Grads with Deferred Careers

Today’s Law Librarian Blog reports that LexisNexis is offering a helpful program for law school grads who have accepted Associate positions at law firms but who are experiencing a deferred fall 2009 start date and taking on public interest work during their deferral period.

The LexisNexis’ ASPIRE Program offers:

  • Free access to a LexisNexis menu consisting of federal and state case-law, codes, regulations and law reviews.
  • The Martindale-Hubbell Career Center which provides access to non-profit interest and pro-bono job opportunities.
  • Online training and materials to be better equipped for public interest work.
  • Non-profit companies can post job opportunities for free on the site.
