Social Justice Law in 2021: Perspectives from the Trenches

April 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The racial equity reckoning of 2020, brought on by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery to name a few, has caused many lawyers to consider their role in achieving social justice. Social justice law is practiced by lawyers who have incredible passion for human rights and equality. But what does social justice law look like in practice, and what does it take to become a human rights lawyer? Join our panel of experts as we consider how lawyers can advocate for and create policy to protect citizens and immigrants in the U.S. who face discrimination on the basis of race, gender, criminal background, economic status, and alienage.

Panelists:

Hannah Proff, Proff Law

Indra Lusero, National Advocates for Pregnant Women

Tiffani Lennon, Colorado Center on Law and Policy

Jessica Bednarz, Chicago Bar Foundation

Free CLE Credit Available
