This business-casual reception will give you a chance to talk to current and former fellows about applying for postgraduate public-interest fellowships, the benefits and challenges of being a fellow, and the ways in which a fellowship can jump start your public-interest career.

We’ll have current and former fellows from organizations such as Legal Counsel for the Elderly, Neighborhood Legal Services Program, National Women’s Law Center, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, and more. Public-interest coordinators from several area law schools will also be on hand to answer questions. RSVP here.

The Washington, DC Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society
presents Access to Justice Brownbag Lunch Featuring:

Jess Rosenbaum
Executive Director
D.C. Access to Justice Commission

Attorneys across disciplines can usually agree on one thing: it is almost
always preferable to have a lawyer than to go it alone. Navigating the
civil courts can be complicated in the best of circumstances, but
low-income residents in DC often have no option but to represent
themselves, putting them at a severe disadvantage. The lack of access to a
fair shot has only been exacerbated as the Recession has simultaneously
increased demand and limited resources.

Please join us for a brownbag lunch event with Jess Rosenbaum of the D.C.
Access to Justice Commission. Ms. Rosebaum will discuss the major justice
gap that exists in D.C., how the D.C. legal community is responding, and
new, innovative ways to meet the ever-increasing demands for help.

12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
