Samuel L. Greenebaum Public Service Program

These Brandeis Law students spent the summer of 2016 as fellows with the Legal Aid Society.

The University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is committed to training thoughtful, civic-minded lawyers who play active roles in their communities. This commitment was exemplified when Brandeis Law became one of the first five law schools in the country to adopt a public service requirement into the standard curriculum.

The Samuel L. Greenebaum Public Service Program began in the spring of 1992 as a volunteer program and became a required component of the curriculum in 1994. The program is funded through an endowment created by Richard and Jane Eskind and John S. Greenebaum to honor the spirit of public service exemplified by their father, the late Samuel L. Greenebaum, a Louisville legal and civic leader.
