PIAC Mentioned in San Diego Daily Transcript
PIAC’s Bill Adams was recently interviewed by the San Diego Daily Transcript regarding the growth of legal incubator programs.
“Bill Adams, a partner at Norton Moore & Adams in San Diego, is the co-founder of a local
group called the Public Interest Advocacy Clinic, which has as one of its goals training law
students and attorneys how to advocate in the public interest. He said he came to the conference
to get a better sense of whether his group, which also plans to bring public-interest litigation,
should establish itself as a formal nonprofit. ‘Now I feel like it is viable and there is a whole
community out there that has been doing the same thing,’ Adams said.”
