I have not had to deal with a student being arrested as an LO. I have a different question. Do other law schools count all legal observing hours as pro bono, or does anyone limit those hours?

We would count it as protecting civil rights and public rights that is covered by Rule 6.1.

38:35
Counting only matters if you require hours for graduation or honors

Are you also prepared for requests from conservative organizations?

I forgot to ask— do others have students volunteering via this project? We had a couple students connect early on but lately it’s been very quiet. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSewQhizXsYOuA95BuwA0K0NIQDdnNhEVmBAEqbIe_wSa6I6mg/viewform

I had two students volunteer with that project, but the projects were not very legal in nature.
