MLaw Public Interest Community Visiting Fellows


In 2015, Stephen E. Raynes ('91) made a gift to the Law School to establish the MLaw Public Interest Community (MPIC) Visiting Fellows program.  This program honors exceptional public interest attorneys working for nonprofits, government agencies, public defenders, and public interest law firms.  Fellows are invited to campus to add to the breadth and depth of career support provided for students within specific interest areas.  These fellows meet individually with students, contribute to written resources, and serve as an additional source of support and networking contacts for students.
