EmPOWERed for Public Interest Group: Lunch with Faculty

Location: Jamail Pavilion

This event is part of the Justice Center initiative designed to support students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers. 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 poor people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.

EPI gatherings serve as a space for dialogue, mentorship, and resource-sharing tailored to the particular needs and strengths of students whose public interest work as attorneys may be directly tied to their lived experiences and/or those of their loved ones. This lunch will be a unique opportunity for students to meet with Texas Law faculty over lunch to discuss navigating law school and public interest legal careers.

Lunch provided. Please RSVP by noon on Monday, February 26th: https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_80qtruVWIFFRX6K
