Law school sponsors alumni spots at ATJ Conference

April 15, 2012

Alumni who are interested in exploring solutions and building skills to address the growing legal needs of low- and moderate-income communities are eligible for scholarships to attend the 17th Annual Access to Justice and Bar Leaders Conference.  

Recognizing this incredible professional development and networking opportunity, the School of Law is offering financial support for a limited number of alumni to attend the conference by paying for the $199 early bird registration fee. 

Selected alumni will join members of the Washington equal justice community, including legal services advocates, judges, private pro bono counsel, bar association leaders and law students dedicated to providing equal access to the legal system for low- and moderate-income people at the conference June 8-10 in Yakima.  

If you are interested in getting assistance with the conference fee, email your resume and a short statement of interest to Kerri Kline at the Access to Justice Institute at  by Friday, April 27.  Your statement of interest should describe why you are interested in attending the conference and your demonstrated commitment to the law school community and social justice. 

In addition to considering specified interests and commitment to social justice, the following factors will be considered in selecting alumni: life experiences and interests that can contribute to forming a rich and diverse group, whether you have already received financial assistance to cover costs for past social justice conferences; and whether current financial limitations would prevent you from attending.

Alumni will be notified by May 1. For more information, contact Diana Singleton , director of the Access to Justice Institute.
