Social Justice Advocacy Institute: Understanding the Issues

Temple University Beasley School of Law

Blank Rome Associate Joel Michel will speak at the Social Justice Advocacy Institute’s “Understanding the Issues” event, held March 27-30, 2017, at Temple University Beasley School of Law.

This four-day event series, developed by Rubin-Presser Fellow Paige Joki, with the assistance of co-Fellow Sela Cowger and the support of the Sheller Center, will help support and educate both day and evening students engaging in client-centered social justice advocacy across many areas of the law. These sessions will serve as a starting point for essential campus conversations, and encourage students to consider how to best work with individuals from different groups and understand systemic issues that can impact the daily lives of clients.

The topics and dates for this series are:

  • March 27: Working with Interpreters
  • March 28: Working with Youth
  • March 29: Creating Collaborative Social Justice Partnerships Between Private Firms and Public Interest for Pro Bono and Low Bono Work
