Join the Justice Center for a mid-semester check-in lunch as part of the initiative designed to support public interest law students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers.
Law schools need to do more to support the well-being, needs, and leadership development of students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, immigrant students, LGBTQ+ students, formerly incarcerated students, and students with families who have been impacted by the criminal or immigration enforcement systems. This space is meant to build a positive community for students who not only have these experiences, but whose public interest work as attorneys may be directly tied to their lived experiences and/or those of their loved ones. For example: students who have themselves or had family members become entangled in the criminal legal system who are interested in public defense work; immigrant students, or students who are the children or family members of immigrants seeking to challenge the immigration system; low-income students seeking to challenge laws and policy that further marginalize low-income people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.
This program seeks to serve as a space for dialogue, mentorship, and resource-sharing that is tailored to the particular needs, and strengths, of students in this position.
