The Washington Council of Lawyers is pleased to offer a brown bag lunch series for summer interns and summer associates: Perspectives on Poverty Law from the Bench. The first program in the series features judges from DC Superior Court: Danya Dayson, Todd Edelman, and Juliet McKenna. The judges will discuss how poverty impacts the justice system, the critical role that pro bono and public interest attorneys play in securing access to justice, and how a public interest career path can lead to a judicial appointment. The moderator will be Moses Cook, Executive Director of DC Law Students in Court.
