Bring your lunch and join us for a brown bag lunch with Premal Dharia, the Director of Litigation at Civil Rights Corps. Civil Rights Corps is a non-profit organization in Washington, DC, that is dedicated to challenging systemic injustice in the American legal system. Staff at Civil Rights Corps work with individuals accused and convicted of crimes, their families and communities, people currently or formerly incarcerated, activists, organizers, judges, and government officials to challenge mass human caging and to create a legal system that promotes equality and human freedom. Civil Rights Corps engages in advocacy and public education and specializes in innovative, systemic civil rights litigation with the goal of resensitizing the legal system and our culture to the injustice and brutality that characterize the contemporary American criminal system. Premal will talk about Civil Rights Corps’s work, staff, and internship program, and will be available to answer questions about all of those things as well as general career questions.

If you or an event participant requires disability-related accommodations, please contact HLS Accessibility Services in the Dean of Students Office at accessibility@law.harvard.edu, or (617) 495-1880 in advance of the event.
