Rural Justice Lawyering: Practicing Law in Rural Communities

12:00PM - 01:00PM Tenley Campus - Warren N101 Classroom

 Rural America has an access to justice crisis. Although a disproportionate percentage of people living in poverty in the United States live in rural areas, there are very few attorneys providing legal services in these communities. In fact, in many rural counties, there are no practicing attorneys at all, and in some rural states, residents must travel hundreds of miles to the nearest legal services office or private firm attorney. Lawyers and law students choosing to practice in these areas also face particular challenges. Join the Office of Public Interest for lunch and a discussion featuring a panel of WCL students, alumni and faculty who have practiced in rural areas to learn more about what its like. We will also discuss law school funding opportunities for those interested in doing this work over the summer (like Equal Justice Works Rural Summer Legal Corps and WCL's Equal Justice Foundation). RSVP to publicinterest@wcl.american.edu.
