Attorneys, professors and students will gather at the University of Georgia Law School March 2 for the Eighth Annual Working in the Public Interest Law Conference.
An announcement on the UGA website says the event will address gun control, homelessness, affirmative action and alternative courts.
The daylong event starts at 9 a.m. in the law school’s Harold Hirsch Hall. It will highlight “dynamic, creative ways to combat social injustice through the vehicle of the law,” says conference organizer and third-year law student Cari Hipp, in a news release.
The conference concludes with a keynote address by Aimee Maxwell, executive director of the Georgia Innocence Project, 6 p.m. at the Melting Point in downtown Athens.
Registration is $10 for the public and free for university faculty, staff and students. CLE credit is available.
