Alternative Spring Break Club

Alternative Spring Break Club is a group of students and faculty devoted to public service. Each year, members spend their spring break volunteering at a public interest organization. The goal of the Alternative Spring Break Club is to give students the opportunity to provide public service while at the same time gaining valuable legal experience and fostering relationships with public interest legal organizations across the nation. In the past, students have traveled to the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona to work with DNA-People’s Legal Services, to Edinburg, TX, where they assisted Texas RioGrande Legal Aide in cases affecting some of the nations’ poorest counties, and to New Orleans, LA, and Biloxi, MS, to work on legal issues in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Membership in the Alternative Spring Break Club is open to all students, faculty, and staff of Western New England University School of Law
