Free Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion – August 8, 2014

As part of the Public Interest Law Track at the 2014 ABA Annual Meeting there will be a free screening and discussion of the acclaimed Robert Reich documentary, “Inequality for All,” a film examining widening income inequality in the United States. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion of ways in which lawyers, law students and the organized bar can address poverty through direct legal services, pro bono programs and legislative advocacy as well as through volunteerism and other engagement. The discussion will include helpful tips for both law students and lawyers interested in making a career switch to public interest law and policy work as well as effective strategies for any lawyer interested in getting involved with antipoverty advocacy efforts on the national, state and local levels. Learn how to get involved with ABA advocacy efforts, and tell the ABA what it can do to support your efforts!
