Public Interest Law Careers Panel to Be Held Feb. 28

W&L will host a Public Interest Law Careers Panel on Feb. 28 at 7:15 p.m. in Stackhouse Theater.

The panel will feature opening remarks by Tammi Simpson, associate dean of students, followed by a panel of lawyers, including:

  • David I. Bruck, Clinical Professor of Law at W&L; Death Row Defense, Virginia Capital Case Clearing House
  • Gail Deady ’11L, Women’s Rights, Reproductive Rights & Gender Equality, ACLU of Virginia
  • Margaret Hu, Associate Professor of Law at W&L; Civil Rights, Immigration & Cybersecurity
  • J.D. King, Clinical Professor of Law at W&L; Public Defense, W&L Law Criminal Justice Clinic
  • Elaine Poon, Civil Rights & Poverty Law, Legal Aid Justice Center
  • Julie Youngman, Visiting Assistant Professor of Business Law and Adjunct Professor of Law at W&L; Environmental Law, Southern Environmental Law Center

Courtney Hauck ’18, a pre-law student and founder of the Roosevelt Institute at W&L, helped organize the event, which she hopes will allow people to take a closer look at public interest law as it relates to a variety of nontraditional legal fields.

“As a pre-law student interested in global environmental health, I wanted to create an opportunity for public service-minded students to learn more about what a law degree could help them achieve,” said Hauck.
