HeadStart 2018 on Hiatus

After 15 continuous years, the organizers of HeadStart have decided to suspend the program for 2018. Rest assured, we are still very committed to providing recent graduates with the fundamentals of legal research and all the tips and tricks we can offer. Look out 2019!

We will be using this time to evaluate the program; to find out what we do well, not so well, and everything in between. A very important part of this process will be getting feedback from you. We will reach out to you again in the fall.

Thank you for your continued support of the HeadStart program and we look forward to your participation next year.
