Marginalized PI Student Support Initiative Launch
Join the Justice Center for the launch of a new program 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.
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.
Lunch provided. Please RSVP to Liza Soria firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, October 20.
