Legal Aid University, which spun off from the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute this year, is looking to grow in strength as a national organization. Currently, it conducts classes in Massachusetts and Seattle, but it is hoping to open a satellite facility in Mississippi. Legal Aid University classes cover topics ranging from witness examination and closing arguments to document drafting. More information is available at: http://www.legalaiduniversity.org.
