The Peggy Browning Fund’s 16th Annual National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference takes place October 17-18, 2014 in Linthicum Heights, MD. The University of Texas School of Law may nominate an unlimited number of students to attend the conference. One student, however, will be eligible for conference sponsorship (including on-site meals and lodging expenses) by the Peggy Browning Fund and travel sponsorship by the Career Services Office.

Apply for Nominations and Sponsorship
To be considered for nomination and sponsorship, please submit your resume and a brief essay (no more than two pages) describing why you want to attend the conference to Nicole Simmons in the CSO at cso-lclp@law.utexas.edu by noon on Thursday, September 4, 2014.

The selection committee will consider such factors as your demonstrated interest in either workers’ rights issues or public interest law and whether you have previously attended the conference. If you are selected as a nominee, you will need to partner with the CSO to register for the conference by Monday, September 8, 2014 to be considered for funding. Please note that registration and funding is administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The CSO will notify nominees about available funds once the nominees are selected. For more information about the conference, visit the Peggy Browning Fund website or contact Nicole Simmons at nsimmons@law.utexas.edu or 512-232-1160.
