Georgia Women in Law Lead: The Front Lines of Public Service - 10/12/17
The Georgia Women in Law Lead (WILL) initiative continued with two panel discussions sponsored by the clinical faculty exploring women's roles in public service and a reception that honored the women judges of Georgia's Western Judicial Circuit. The event was co-sponsored by the Women Law Students Association. The first panel, Walking the Talk: Lawyers Leading Through Public Service, brought together experienced practitioners who have worked in diverse contexts including: government service, nonprofit advocacy and university-based community support. The panelists will explore several significant questions associated with advocacy in the public interest. The second panel, Courtroom as Classroom: Lessons from Front Line Judges, discussed the experience of judges in front line courts as a source of education, not just for parties but also for students and other observers.
