Message from LexisNexis:
This past week has been very exciting for us, with the launch of our new
LexisNexis Associates Serving Public Interest Research (ASPIRE) Program.  ASPIRE, which provides complimentary LexisNexis access to deferred fall associates pursuing public interest work, has been well received by law firms, law school deans, career services directors, and students across the country.  We have been truly pleased to support our customers’ needs during this greatly challenging time.

In response your positive feedback, we are delighted to announce that we are expanding eligibility to all 2009 graduates pursuing verifiable
public service (non-profit or charitable) work.  This includes:

(1)    Deferred fall 2009 associates pursuing public interest work during
their deferral periods,

(2)    2009 graduates who elect to pursue public interest work while
searching for law firm employment,

(3)    Those 2009 graduates who pursue public interest work as a
continuing profession.

Complimentary LexisNexis access will be provided throughout these
graduates’ public interest employment periods, up until September 2010 maximum.   Your interested graduates may sign up now at www.lexisnexis.com/aspire

Again, we applaud new graduates who are pursuing public service, and
welcome your continued feedback.  If you have any questions, please contact us at: (937)865-1904 or scott.collins@lexisnexis.com 

Congratulations on your graduation~
