Date: May 1, 2005.

Mr. Kurt J. Miller,
People's Law Firm,
111 Saint Francis Way,
Milwaukee, WI 53202.

Dear Mr. Miller,

Professor David Lord at the Pennsylvania college of Law suggested that I contact you to ask for advice for taking the correct career decision. I have a liking for public interest law as I am very interested in social work and making the general public aware of their rights.

Since you have been in this field all your life, I would like to know more details of the job and the kind of cases you come across on a regular basis. Last summer I worked as a clerk for a private firm owing to the fact that public interest law is practiced by very few people. Although I loved the challenges and the responsibilities, I would like to seriously take up public interest law.

Your suggestion in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I would be in Wisconsin in the month of July between 10 and 15, 2005. I would call you then to schedule an appointment with you for a suitable time to meet. If you have any queries or anything to share with me in the meanwhile, please feel free to call me on the above telephone number.

I look forward to meet you and appreciate your time.


Timothy M. Milburn,
Senior Student, Law,
