Marginalized PI Group: Community-Building Lunch: Mid-semester Check-in
Join the Justice Center for a mid-semester check-in! This event is part of the initiative that seeks to support students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers. The space will be a time for continuing to build community, ask any questions about summer funding resources, and discussion about resources that can make a public interest law career more financially feasible for low-income students.
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.
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.
