Public Interest Research Guide
Marquette Law School is a vibrant center for legal and academic research. Through our accomplished faculty, legal research staff, and law student research assistants sponsored by the Office of Public Service, Marquette Law School seeks to advance the cause of equal access to justice through community-based research and scholarship.
We invite community based organizations serving disadvantaged populations to submit requests for legal research to the Office of Public Service. These requests will be vetted to faculty and students to determine interest and scope of response.
Members of the public interest law community are invited to explore the resources available at Marquette Law School's Eckstein Law Library and suggest ways that we can improve our service to the public. You may also wish to consider consulting with members of our facultyregarding particular areas of legal expertise, or utilizing our facilities to host continuing legal education, conferences or moot trial and appellate arguments. In these many ways, Marquette Law School holds itself out to the community as a center of legal research and public service.
