Lincoln Hall- LM104; Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and online
375 East Chicago Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
The Children and Family Justice Center is pleased to cosponsor Bluhm Legal Clinic's inaugural Race and Lawyering in the 21st Century symposium, to be online and at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law’s Lincoln Hall.
While Chicago's gun violence is a recurring topic of conversation, the fantastic speakers joining the panels concerning gun possession, criminal system responses, and violence prevention have unique perspectives to share.
In person and online attendance options are available; registration is required. The in-person option is limited to Lincoln Hall’s 50% capacity. Panelists will be socially distanced; all other attendees will be required to wear a mask. In-person attendees must attest to being fully vaccinated or obtain a negative test within the previous 48 hours. CLE credits and social work CEUs are free of charge.
