I love hearing what my former LSAT students are doing in law school and beyond. Liz Jones was a student of mine who is now attending Stanford Law School. She's also on the executive board of the Shaking the Foundations: The West Coast Progressive Lawyering Conference.
Shaking the Foundations is a conference that brings together progressive legal minds from the West Coast and across the country to discuss present and future issues within the movement, explore the role of young lawyers, and encourage attendees to work toward social and environmental justice. In addition to the panels and workshops, Shaking the Foundations offers two networking opportunities for students.
The conference is featuring civil rights advocate Professor Michelle Alexander, a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, and legal scholar, and author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. She is giving the keynote presentation on Friday, October 17 at 7 p.m.
If you're interested in public interest law, you definitely should check out the Shaking the Foundations conference and plan to attend Michelle Alexander's keynote.
