Equal Justice Conference Scholarship

The law firm of Quarles and Brady has generously offered to fund the travel and expenses of one UW law student to attend the 2007 ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference in Denver, CO from March 22-24. The title of this year's conference is "Justice In a Changing, Diverse World: Preserving the Rule of Law Through Inclusive High Quality Legal Services to the Disadvantaged." The Conference brings together all components of the legal community to discuss equal justice issues as they relate to the delivery of legal services to the poor and low-income individuals in need of legal assistance. The emphasis of this Conference is on strengthening partnerships among the key players in the civil justice system. Through plenary sessions, workshops, networking opportunities and special programming, the Conference provides a wide range of learning and sharing experiences for all attendees. The main Conference will celebrate the ongoing collaboration between pro bono and legal services, explore additional partnerships that must be created, the resources that must be tapped, and the new issues facing clients. For more information, please visit: http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/ejc/. If you are interested in applying to attend the Conference, please download an application form from the PILF web site (http://law.wisc.edu/students/pilf/index.htm). Applications are due on Friday, February 9 by 4:00 p.m. in the Career Services Office. If you have any questions, please contact Kristin Davis at kristindavis@wisc.edu.
