50 Years of Clinic: A Celebration!
On October 27-28, 2022, the Clinical Program will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a two-day event: an Alumni Reception on the evening of Thursday, October 27th and a full-day symposium in conjunction with the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law on Friday, October 28th.
As we honor our past, we also look forward to a dynamic and exciting future. The Sankofa bird in the image above is a symbol in the African diaspora. Originating in the Twi language of Ghana, "sankofa" can be translated as "to go back to the past and bring forward what is useful," just as the bird is looking behind itself and holding an egg in its beak. We are excited about this opportunity to reconnect with past students, faculty members, and friends of the Clinic and to examine how we can build on our accomplishments and best prepare our students to meet new challenges.
