ATJI offers countless ways for students and the law school community to deepen their understanding of social justice issues. Below is a listing of current offerings that help students connect academic learning with real-world issues and action.
Social Justice Mondays: Social Justice Mondays is an organized, weekly series that aims to create a forum to bring awareness and encourage discussion about the many issues that surround the idea of "social justice" in order to educate and strengthen the community of students, faculty and staff at Seattle University School of Law.
ATJI works with students and student organizations to organize Social Justice Mondays that often involve faculty, practicing attorneys, and other community leaders presenting or facilitating a conversation on a substantive legal issue. Details about the event including the topic and speakers are emailed weekly to student, staff and faculty.
Interested in Organizing a Social Justice Monday? We invite students, student organizations, faculty, and/or staff to submit proposals for a program/event idea. Please see the Social Justice Mondays Event Proposal Guidelines for more information.
