The Public Interest Collective's Conference for Social Justice is a day of collaboration, panels, workshops, and topical networking opportunities for public interest law students. The PIC Conference, on September 23rd, will give law students across the NYC Metro Area, who are passionate about public interest law, an opportunity to meet one another, hear from the conference's key-note speaker, Bill Quigley, and work together on building and improving opportunities for meaningful public interest work while in law school.
The PIC began a year ago as an effort to forge relationships and collaborations, both professionally and personally, between pro bono project leaders at New York and New Jersey area law schools. The PIC Conference was developed with participation from students at Brooklyn, Cardozo, Columbia, CUNY, Fordham, Hofstra, New York, New York University, Rutgers-Newark, Seton Hall, Pace and Touro. We believe the PIC Conference will give students tools to create and sustain dynamic organizations, and the chance to start relationships as they begin their careers as attorneys and advocates in the non-profit sector.
This conference is our first collective initiative. And we are really stoked about it.
