Presented by Angel Cabrera Silva, S.J.D. candidate
How can lawyers be agents of change? How can they avoid hijacking social struggles?
Join us for a collective reflection on the influence legal professionals wield in contemporary social movements, sometimes supporting and, at times, inadvertently affecting them. Each session of this workshop will explore different ways in which lawyers have understood their contributions to social justice, from impact litigation to rebellious lawyering, and other approaches to legal practice.
