February 11: Social Justice Tuesday- Legal Aid, Law Students & Low Income Veterans
Tuesday February 11, Room 133, 12:30-1:20PM
Hosted by: Center for Public Service Law
12.44% of Washington adults are veterans and the Department of Veterans Affairs is the second largest federal department in our government, yet few public interest lawyers have a chance to learn about the unique legal and cultural considerations that affect so many of our fellow persons and so much of our government. 22 veterans commit suicide everyday across our nation, and lawyers have an essential role to play in saving those lives. Please join three recent law school graduates and current legal fellows as they discuss:
- Legal and cultural considerations for representing low-income veterans
- Existing organizations that assist low-income veterans
- How law students can get involved with Equal Justice Works, AmeriCorps and Northwest Justice Project to help veterans and gain legal experience
- Adam Chromy, Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Veterans Legal Fellow (NJP Seattle)
- Michelle Miller, Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Veterans Legal Fellow (NJP Everett)
- Leo Flor, Equal Justice Works Fellow sponsored by Microsoft and Fenwick & West LLP (NJP Seattle)
