Additional Information
Ever on the lookout for events that raise money for noteworthy causes and non-profit law groups, and as a law school race director himself, TriathlonTrialLawyer Doug Landau posts this race. The Race for Justice promotes the provision of public interest legal services in two ways. First, proceeds from the race fund stipends for current law students who pursue unpaid public interest work over the summer. Second, the race benefits the G.W. Loan Reimbursement Assistance Program (LRAP) which helps recent graduates pursue public interest employment by providing forgivable loans to those who pursue low paying public interest careers.
