Gary Bellow Public Service Award Finalist Speakers and Celebration

April 17, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us to celebrate the public interest community at HLS at the Gary Bellow Public Service Award Event. Each year, the Gary Bellow Public Service Award recognizes a student who – like Professor Below – exemplifies how lawyers can litigate, educate, advocate, and organize to promote social justice. At this lunch event, come hear short TedTalk-style presentations from each of the award finalists about their diverse areas of public interest law, and their reflections and aspirations.

Hear from the following finalists:

  • Annie Manhardt on the relationship between traditional public interest work and prisoners’ rights advocacy.
  • Cameron Clark on the integration of legal ethnography into clinical legal education.
  • Ross Brockway on how lawyers and law students can work to bridge divides that the law has historically aggravated to better realize Dr. Martin Luther King’s vision of interconnectedness and “beloved community.”
  • Amy Volz on her involvement in the Mamani TVPA litigation that just won a jury verdict, through which she will explore international human rights litigation in general and its intersection with immigration advocacy.

The finalist who received the most votes in the student body vote will also be presented with the award at this event. Come cheer on your classmates and learn more about public interest law in its various forms. Lunch will be provided!
