For the past twenty years, during the first weekend in March, law students, law teachers, and public interest lawyers have gathered in the snowy woods of rural New Hampshire for a public interest retreat. The annual event is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Robert Cover, a beloved law professor, brilliant legal scholar, and committed social activist who died in 1986 at the age of forty-two.

Robert Cover and Milner Ball were close friends and intellectual fellow travelers. They shared not only an academic interest in the inter-relationships between law, theology, and literature, but also a passionate commitment to the struggle for social justice, to which Bob felt, and Milner feels, called by Biblical stories.
