In this live event and Zoom webinar stream, panelists will discuss how students have worked on campaigns for change with their clinics by leading a state, national and international movement for trauma-sensitive schools; by working on an international campaign to ban killer robots (aka autonomous weapons systems); and by partnering with people facing incarceration, public defenders, and community activists to work to end mass incarceration. The panelists will share how their thinking has developed over time regarding building effective campaigns and delve into the various strategic and ethical considerations that arise in these varied types of campaigns.
Featuring Michael Gregory, Director of the Education Law Clinic/Trauma Learning Policy Initiative, Bonnie Docherty, Senior Clinical Instructor at the International Human Rights Clinic, and Premal Dharia, Co-Director of the Institute to End Mass Incarceration Clinic, moderated by Meredith Boak, Assistant Dean for Clinical and Pro Bono Programs.
This event is a part of the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs Speaker Series: Legal Advocacy Toolkit, a multi-part series during Academic Year 21-22 featuring cross-clinic conversations with clinical faculty and instructors who will bring a critical eye to how they employ various advocacy tools.
The panelists will be in-person, in WCC 1023, with Thai food from Sugar & Spice provided for lunch. The discussion will also be livestreamed on Zoom – register for the webinar here. For any accessibility needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
