Starting next summer, the University of Michigan Law School will provide a $5,000 stipend for second-year law students interning with qualified government or public interest organizations. Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and a 1989 Michigan Law graduate says a stipend would have been a big help when she was in school: "Instead of spending my summers at firms because I couldn't afford to work for free, I could have had a foot in the door to a public interest job much sooner."
