On October 22nd, 2009, the Consortium for the Advancement of Public Service in Law Schools (CAPSILS) will release its first-ever Law school Public Service Resource Handbook at the annual NALP Public Service Mini Conference in Washington D.C. The handbook is intended to provide a brief, user-friendly overview of helpful information and resources for new (and not so new) law school faculty and staff who support law school pro bono and public interest programs and curricula as part or all of their job.

CAPSILS is a working group that has been formed to foster dialogue among the national players in the law school pro bono and public interest arenas. Participating members include the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service and the Center for Pro Bono; the American Association of Law Schools Section on Pro Bono and Public Service Opportunities; Equal Justice Works; and the National Association for Law Placement (NALP) and its PSLawNet Public Service Career Center.
