Project Information

GrowDelta (Clarksdale, MS)

Students will travel to the Mississippi Delta to develop and present a business and legal training to local musicians and artists. Students will meet with musicians and artists to learn about their business interests and legal barriers. They will also meet with successful artists and a music production company.

The students will be responsible for two primary deliverables: (1) preparing a written legal guide for artists and musicians in Mississippi; and (2) presenting and teaching these legal issues to a group of musicians and artists at a GrowDelta’s training. The legal guide and training will cover various issues, including but not limited to IP, trademark, contract drafting and negotiation, Internet, licensing, and publishing.

Four students will be selected for this trip. Students must be in Clarksdale on Saturday, March 19 for session. Optional night in Memphis on Saturday, March 12 or 19.

Southern Migrant Legal Services (Nashville, TN)

Students will assist Southern Migrant Legal Services, an organization that serves migrant and seasonal farm workers throughout the southern states and Central America. Students will conduct legal research and client interviews for cases related to employment litigation and immigration protections for workers who are victims of crime. Students may do outreach to newly arrived migrant workers.

Four to eight students will be selected for this trip. Students must speak Spanish.
