2022 Annual Meeting Program

Prioritizing Public Service in Your Role as the Dean: Why it Matters

Join us as an esteemed panel of deans discuss why they prioritize supporting public service, pro bono, and other social justice initiatives at their law schools. The panel will discuss the essential ingredients needed to build a strong culture of service within law schools, and the ways they support, financially and otherwise, the costs of pro bono and public service when budgets are tight. How do service-oriented programs support successful admissions, curricular, career planning, and alumni relations efforts? How can law schools respond meaningfully to the access to justice crisis? This will be an engaging discussion for deans, associate & assistant deans, and pro bono & public service program managers alike.
