Basic human rights and immigration policy continue to be front-line battles lawyers are fighting across the country. In the third session in our Summer Forum series, we will probe the ways that immigrant-rights organizations are working to protect the rights of immigrants and promote access to justice both in D.C. and around the country. The Human Rights & Immigration panel will be on Thursday, July 16 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants the day before the panel.
Our expert panel includes:
- Azadeh Erfani, Senior Policy Analyst, National Immigration Justice Center
- Sarah Besnoff, Associate at Paul Hastings LLP
- Jessalyn Schwartz, Staff Attorney at Kids In Need of Defense (KIND)
- Lucia Curiel – Immigration Attorney, Maryland Office of the Public Defender
- Michael Lukens, Associate Director at CAIR Coalition
Karen Grisez, Public Service Counsel at Fried Frank LLP will guide the conversation.
The Summer Forum is open to Washington Council of Lawyers members (join), participants in summer associate and summer intern programs, lawyers in law firms, government and public-interest organizations, and others interested in learning more about incorporating public-interest law into their practice.
One registration gives you access to all six sessions (keynote and five breakout panels). The recordings for all six sessions will be available to registrants later in the summer. You may register at any time before July 23 and receive access to all Summer Forum sessions.
