EPIC Inspiration Awards next week
11:13 am, February 1st, 2012
The Emory Public Interest Committee is hosting its annual EPIC Inspiration Awards ceremony at 7 p.m. on Feb. 7. EPIC raised more than $150,000 last year for summer grants to Emory Law students to do public service work. The event is the group’s primary fundraiser and requires a $35 donation.
This year’s honorees are Norman L. Underwood of Troutman Sanders for his lifetime commitment to public service; Jan Pratt, who retired last year from her post as director of Emory Law School’s field placement and pro bono programs; and Susan C. Jamieson, who founded the Atlanta Legal Aid Society’s Mental Health and Disability Rights project 25 years ago. Jamieson won a landmark 1999 Supreme Court ruling for disability rights, Olmstead v. L.C., representing two women in a Georgia mental institution who wanted to live in the community.
