Starting next summer, the University of Michigan Law School will provide a $5,000 stipend for second-year law students interning with qualified government or public interest organizations. In announcing the program, the law school pointed out that many internships in the nonprofit, public interest and government fields often provide little or no funding. "A public service guarantee would have made a big difference for me when I was in law school," said Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and a 1989 Michigan Law graduate.
