Politics and Purpose Movement Lawyering Workshop

This event takes place online.
Communities navigating the interwoven crises of authoritarianism, racism, climate change, and the pandemic need movement lawyers now more than ever. Marginalized communities are facing a scale of crises that we have not seen before – the courts will continue to roll back crucial rights as millions face deportation, incarceration, and precarious working conditions. Yet against tremendous odds, people are rising up and fighting back.
This webinar will highlight the key theories of social change undergirding movement lawyering. Unpack opportunities to hone movement lawyering skills at this stage of your life. You will build relationships with other students and movement lawyering practitioners. As well as, hear wisdom and stories from the field from organizers and movement lawyers. This is a workshop designed to explore the theory, practice and heart of movement lawyering as you start the school year. Together you will critically examine the relationship between law, lawyers, and social movements and have some real talk about what these times require of us.
The registration deadline is September 14th.This workshop consists of one 3-hour interactive online session via Zoom with breaks and a smaller group breakout for more personalized interaction with panelists. Once you register, you will receive all related materials and zoom link.
