Public Interest Law Foundation 2019 Evening with Equal Justice
Please join Seattle University’s Public Interest Law Foundation and Access to Justice Institute* for our annual Evening with Equal Justice. As one of the largest on-campus public interest networking events of the year, law students will have the opportunity to interact and learn from a diverse range of public interest and pro bono attorneys.
This year’s Evening with Equal Justice will begin at 5 p.m. with an introduction by Dean Clark followed by a keynote address by Tarra Simmons ’17, Executive Director of Civil Survival and Skadden Fellow for the Public Defender Association. Ms. Simmons will be speaking about her personal journey into public interest law, issues of reentry from incarceration, and criminal justice reform.
Following the address, attorneys and students will meet each other and be grouped based on practice areas and interests. Attorneys are encouraged to attend the keynote address or join us at 6 p.m. for networking with students grouped by practice area.
