Proskauer Rose LLP has announced that its privacy law blog (privacylaw. proskauer.com) has been selected for inclusion in the Library of Congress historic collection of Internet materials. Launched in 2007, the blog is authored by lawyers in the firm's international Privacy and Data Security Practice Group and covers recent case law and regulatory activity, new developments, and important issues in the area.
The selection of the privacy law blog is part of the Library of Congress's traditional function of acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving materials of historical importance to the Congress and the American people. For several years the Library of Congress has collected digital materials and websites related to the law and government. The content is made available to researchers onsite at library facilities as well as on its public access website.
The Newark, NJ office of Proskauer Rose LLP has created a public interest fellowship program for students at Rutgers School of Law-Newark. The Proskauer initiative complements the school's Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) summer grant program, which provides a stipend to students who pursue unpaid community-based work.
Proskauer will support two fellowships for the summer of 2008 and four fellowships for the summer of 2009. The Rutgers students will work full-time for a minimum of 10 weeks at one of the three agencies funded by Essex County Legal Services Foundation: Essex-Newark Legal Services, the Education Law Center, and Volunteer Lawyers for Justice. The recipients will also be invited to participate in the Proskauer in-house training programs offered to the firm's regular summer associates.
