In response to this week’s controversy involving the campus chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas plans to hold a “catch an illegal immigrant” game the University Leadership Initiative, the student organization on campus that advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and access to higher education for all, organized a rally to be held today at noon. While the YCT cancelled their event, immigration advocates are going forward with the rally to bring attention to the need for immigration reform.

"It appears that would-be law students aren’t turned off by the prospect of mandatory pro bono work.

Well more than half the 750 pre-law students surveyed in June by Kaplan Test Prep—68 percent to be exact—said they support a rule requiring law students to complete a certain amount of pro bono work before being admitted to the bar . . ."
