Time-Critical Opportunity for Pro-Gun Law Students (or Lawyers)

We have a rare opportunity to offer law students (or volunteer lawyers) a chance to write an amicus curiae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Pro-Second Amendment, pro-RKBA law students are needed to work on a brief to the Supreme Court that will urge the Court to review the Ninth Circuit's Silveira v. Lockyer decision. The Silveira decision held that the Second Amendment does not protect the individual right to keep and bear arms, but only affirms the right of the people to be armed when serving in the state militia. The case is being appealed to the Supreme Court via a petition for writ of certiorari. The amicus brief would urge the Court to grant the writ.

Students who volunteered for this project would be guided every step of the way by experienced appellate lawyers so it is not sink or swim!

As you may know, JPFO is investing nearly all of its energy and funding into finishing the Innocents Betrayed documentary film. We would like to submit an amicus brief to support the Silveira appeal, but we don't have the funds or manpower for the project right now. One or more students are needed who would like this rare opportunity to write a high profile brief.

Interested students should contact JPFO as soon as possible -- the filing deadline is just over a month away.

Email the webmaster@jpfo.org with your contact information.  Even law students who just need a solid writing sample for future legal employment could find this project very much worthwhile!

Pass the word!
