Students, please join the MLaw Public Interest Community and Professor Mike Steinberg for our annual Public Interest Kickoff on Wednesday, September 9, from 8-9 pm EST. This year's celebration will be a virtual event and we are thrilled to host three exceptional public interest lawyers: Marbre Stahly-Butts (Executive Director of Law for Black Lives), Chase Strangio (Deputy Director for Trans Justice with the ACLU's LGBT & HIV Project), and Tiffany Cabán (former public defender and DA candidate, now political organizer). The event will feature a conversation between Professor Steinberg and our three guests, followed by breakout sessions with each speaker so that students can ask questions and network in smaller groups. Although we will miss gathering around Professor Steinberg's backyard bonfire this year, we hope this event will provide you with the same inspiration and feeling of community!
All students are welcome. Please RSVP in Symplicity by going to the Events tab and selecting the "Workshop" you wish to attend. Please RSVP by September 9th at 3 pm EST -- the Zoom links to the group conversation and individual breakout rooms will ONLY be sent to students who RSVP by the deadline.
