We have recently learned that student attorneys* at the Consumer and Commercial Law Clinic of the Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord, New Hampshire, have joined the fight against the RIAA, and have been defending a person targeted by the RIAA in New Hampshire, in UMG Recordings v. Roy.
The case is scheduled for trial in the Fall of 2009.
*Student attorneys are law students working under the supervision of law school faculty members.
[Ed. note. That makes at least four (4) law school clinical programs, of which we are aware, providing legal assistance to people targeted by the RIAA: the University of San Francisco School of Law, the University of Maine Law School, Franklin Pierce Law Center, and most recently Harvard University Law School. Hopefully many more will follow. -R.B.]
