    This program focuses on ways to structure inter-professional opportunities for law students to engage with students and professionals from other disciplines through a social justice lens. The program will explore how to promote and facilitate holistic problem identification, problem-solving and advocacy from a variety of disciplinary lenses and perspectives. Participants will learn how faculty can engage in research, service, and teaching to develop lawyers who can work across disciplines in pursuit of justice. This type of bridge-building is critical, in light of the many barriers to justice for the most vulnerable among us. The panel will explore how we can benefit from moving out of our silos and working with other professionals who share our social justice vision and aims.

    Business Meeting will be held during the section luncheon on Thursday, January 4, 2019 from 12:15 - 1:30 pm.
