Public Interest Law & Policy Speakers Series
The 2016-17 Public Interest Law & Policy Speakers Series features an outstanding line-up of judges, lawyers, authors, and academics with expertise in public interest law and policy. The year-long, interdisciplinary series brings to Washington University nationally and internationally prominent experts in such areas as civil rights, racial justice, capital punishment, international human rights, government public service, and pro bono private practice. Initiated by the Clinical Education Program in 1998 as part of the 25th anniversary of the program, this popular series is now in its nineteenth year.

Each program is free of charge and open to the public. Each talk will be in Anheuser-Busch Hall, unless otherwise noted. Most talks provide MCLE 1.0. For more information, contact Karen Tokarz at 314.935.6414 or tokarz@wulaw.wustl.edu.
