Pro Bono Service Recognition Dinner
Every April, the law school honors the students who have made service work a central component of their legal education, and the supervising attorneys who provide them with hands-on legal training and invaluable guidance. The event is an opportunity for the law school community to come together with its public- interest-minded stakeholders to share moving success stories, and to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of our student-advocates.
