Students can find out more about PLAP by attending one of its events at the beginning of the year. PLAP will hold an Open House in September, and will be present at the Student Practice Organization Panel as well as the Student Activities Fair.
Please join us at the Student Activities Fair on September 20 from 5 until 8pm in Millstein East and West. Get more information at the PLAP Open House on September 21 from 1 to 5pm in the PLAP office, WCC Suite 5107. (Snacks will be served). Students interested in joining PLAP must participate in PLAP Office Training on Sunday, September 23, from 1-3pm. (Lunch served). Contact PLAPdirectors@gmail.com with any questions.
To join PLAP, you need to complete 12 certification forms to enter the Massachusetts state prisons (each prison requires its own original copy). The forms are very simple and must be submitted by the Fall deadline date even if you don't plan on joining until the spring semester. If you don't submit the forms in the fall, you will only be able to do office hours if you join in the spring.
PLAP's only other requirement is that you commit to an hour each week (for first-year PLAP students attorneys) to assist inmates via the hotline and answer inmate letters during office hours. It will be the same time every week. You will be supervised by a 2L or 3L.
