Students Organize Haitian Relief Efforts

The people of Haiti have suffered a humanitarian disaster of enormous proportions. The School of Law’s thoughts are with all Haitians and particularly with members of our own community who have lost family and friends there. Maryland Law students are organizing efforts to mobilize the Law School community in supporting the Haitian relief efforts of the American Red Cross International Response Fund and Catholic Relief Services.

From Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, January 22 the Student Bar Association collected donations at a table situated across from the mailboxes on the first floor of the Law School, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross or the Clinton Foundation's efforts in Haiti.

Student Bar Association President Pegah Parsi and James Dold, Community Service Chair for SBA and the Maryland Public Interest Law Project, are working with Teresa Schmiedeler, Director of Pro Bono and Public Service Initiatives, to organize Haitian Relief Efforts Donation Tables in the law school and other events throughout the semester to show the School of Law's support. If interested in assisting with this effort, please contact Pegah Parsi at ppars001@umaryland.edu or James Dold at jdold001@umaryland.edu.
