Please join us for “Champions of Change: Celebrating Public Service Lawyers with the White House”
A live-streaming event on Thursday, October 13, 2011 from 2:00-3:30pm
Room 1312 (large courtroom)

The White House Office of Public Engagement and the Access to Justice Initiative at the U.S. Department of Justice will host a national, on-line conversation among law students, faculty, and staff, public service lawyers, and Attorney General Eric Holder, to talk about what lawyers can do to close the justice gap.  The conversation will illustrate the range and quality of public interest lawyers’ accomplishments by honoring 16 exemplar public service Champions at the White House. The event seeks to inspire students to think of new ways that they can use their law degrees toward the common goal of public service.

Attorney General Holder will field questions submitted electronically from interested parties in classrooms  from across the nation about how  to improve access to our justice system.
