The Systemic Justice Project is hosting a zoom webinar series on “Systemic Lawyering in Times of Crisis” on Tuesdays from 12-1pm EST.

The webinars are free and open to the public. See below for more information – this post will be updated with details of the ongoing panels.
The series features systemically-oriented justice-seeking lawyers and activists in fields most affected by our latest crisis: housing, immigration, disability, employment, consumer/credit, incarceration, voting rights, climate, health care, and more.
Each session will examine the special challenges posed by the crisis, the revised priorities and strategies being adopted, and the new collaborations being forged. We will consider the pressing needs, the new opportunities, and the more general lessons for lawyers, law students, and others committed to promoting systemic change.
This panelists for this week’s session, Tuesday April 14 at 12pm EST, include:
- Lam Ho: Executive Director and Founder at Beyond Legal Aid
- Phil Torrey: Managing Attorney of the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program, Director of Crimmigration Clinic
