Movement Lawyering for Social Justice: Skill-Building Workshop | L47xx
In recent years, there has been a noticeable groundswell of grassroots activism, organizing, and coalition building around social, racial, gender, and economic justice issues in the U.S. This creates new possibilities for generating positive social change, and lawyers are in a unique position to be able to support, strengthen, and magnify such social movements. This interactive 1-credit immersion two day workshop will introduce students to the idea of movement lawyering. It will primarily be a skills building workshop that will begin to teach students about organizing, messaging/communications, policy analysis, and legal tools all with an eye towards building long-term social justice campaigns and contributing to organizational, community, or individual capacity building. The workshop will include guest teaching by organizers, communications professionals, and others.
