This interactive dialogue will bring together 1L and upper-class students, faculty, and administrators to explore how to use your experiences in foundation courses and other large classes to enhance your vision and skillset as change agents. We will explore, first through brief remarks by experienced students and faculty and then in facilitated dialogue, how to ground your in-class learning (including in 1L and large classes) in social justice contexts you care about, and how to use your classroom learning to increase your effectiveness as a change agent. The session will be co-facilitated by student, staff, and faculty.

Sponsored by the Public Interest Lawyering and Leadership Committee and SJI. The Lawyering for Change series is a monthly workshop aimed at providing an opportunity for faculty, students, staff, and alumni to interact informally with each other, framed by brief remarks about an issue or topic relating to the general theme. 

Hosted by SJI. Non-pizza lunch will be served. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options will be available. If you have further dietary restrictions, email Diana Pedi at [email protected] at least two business days prior to the event, and we will do our best to accommodate them.
