LexisNexis has launched a new program for deferred graduates which will enable students who pursue public service during the deferral of professional practice to access certain LexisNexis services free of charge.
Initially, the LexisNexis ASPIRE (Associates Serving Public Interests Research) program was limited to graduates who have accepted an associate position at a law firm but are experiencing a deferred fall 2009 start date and are taking on public interest work during the deferral period.
But Lexis has recently announced that they are expanding eligibility to all 2009 graduates pursuing verifiable public interest (non-profit or charitable) work. This includes:
(1) Deferred fall associates pursuing public interest work during their deferral periods,
(2) 2009 graduates who elect to pursue public interest work while searching for law firm employment, and
(3) Those 2009 graduates who pursue public interest work as a continuing profession.
Complimentary LexisNexis access will be provided throughout these graduates' public interest employment periods, up until September 2010 maximum.
Interested students may sign up now at www.lexisnexis.com/aspire.
