Jennifer Wu and Lawrence Wee ’94 of Paul Weiss will share with us how they have advocated for and represented Asian victims of hate. Diane Lucas ’07 will talk about how she leads the racial justice work at Davis Polk as pro bono counsel. Karen O’Malley of Goulston Storrs will talk about the contributions she has made on behalf of domestic violence survivors and to advance women’s rights and reproductive justice. The panelists will share their reflections on how they are both representing individual and organizational clients and working to advance social change and community progress more broadly. The panel will be moderated by Assistant Dean Meredith Boak of the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs.
