Biographical / Historical

From the Law Center Bulletin, 1988-89, p.140: The Institute for Public Representation (IPR) is a public interest law center founded in 1971 by Georgetown with funds furnished by the Ford Foundation, to provide legal representation to unrepresented groups and interests before administrative agencies, courts, and other decision-making bodies. The Institute is involved in a wide range of issues: constitutional law, minority and women's rights, corporate responsibility, communications law, professional responsibility, regulatory reform, access to the federal courts, immigration policy, consumer advocacy, environmental protection, and rights of the handicapped. In January 1981, the Institute merged with the Citizens Communications Center (CCC), a public interest law firm specializing in federal communications law. The Center was founded in 1971 and has a distinguished reputation for its work concerning the responsibility of the electronic media to the public interest.
