If you were trying to get someone to give you money to work for a public interest agency, how would you respond to the following essay question? State briefly (300 words) your sense of the relevancy of public interest work to contemporary society. Answers I'm considering:
- Public interest : contemporary society :: Oxygen : survival - "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." - It's all relative. I mean relevant. It's all relevant. - One day, all children.... - As Albert Einstein, noted smart guy, once put it: "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile...." -Public interest makes all of the public interest-minded law students anxious and grumpy as they frantically look for jobs while the corporate law people get to spend their 3L year imagining how they're going to spend that $125,000 a year.Any other suggestions?
