Every summer, the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs (OCP), in conjunction with the Office of Public Interest Advising (OPIA), sponsors a Summer Speakers Series offered to undergraduate and law student interns working at HLS over the summer.

The aim of the Summer Speaker Series is to provide a casual and informative forum to explore diverse areas of public interest law, discuss legal issues at the forefront of world events, introduce students to the people behind the ideas and learn about the speaker’s personal journey in the law.  By bringing in practitioners and theorists who are experts in their field, we hope that students will broaden their ideas of how law shapes our lives, and how people shape the law.

Most of the sessions will be held over the 12-1pm lunch hour (lunch provided) in the main WCC building.

For any questions about this series, please contact the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs (617-495-5202) or
