Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s 20th Annual Women and the Law Conference, Diversity, Pluralism, and Repair: Honoring Our Past and Charting Our Legacy, will be held on Friday, April 2, 2021 as a webinar. This conference brings together leading experts and practitioners to discuss critical legal and political developments affecting women, people of color, and the body politic as we pursue diversity in a pluralistic society. At a time when public discourse about diversity and inclusion seems irreconcilably polarized, this event will focus on the means to acknowledge our past, chart a course forward, and repair civil society in a fractious period in our history.

Boston University School of Law Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig, a renowned scholar of critical race theory and expert in race and gender inequality, will deliver the 18th Ruth Bader Ginsburg Lecture. In addition to serving as Dean, she is the inaugural Ryan Roth Gallo and Ernest J. Gallo Professor at Boston University. The Gallo chair is the first professorship in the country expressly supporting scholarly work in critical race theory, with a particular focus on the intersection of race and gender. Onwuachi-Willig continues in a long line of illustrious speakers who have been honored as the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Lecturer, a lecture series the late Justice Ginsburg generously established for Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2003.

Other speakers include: Luz E. Herrera, Associate Dean and Professor of Law at Texas A & M University School of Law; Elizabeth Kronk Warner, Dean and Professor of Law at University of Utah College of Law; Jennifer L. Levi, Professor at Western New England School of Law; Donna E. Young, Dean at Ryerson University Faculty of Law (Toronto, Canada); Susan Tiefenbrun, Professor Emeritus at Thomas Jefferson School of Law; Yahairah Aristy, President of Lawyers Club of San Diego; and Renee N. G. Stackhouse, President, San Diego County Bar Association.

California Innocence Project

The California Innocence Project (CIP) is a law school clinical program at California Western School of Law.  CIP provides pro bono legal assistance to inmates in cases where DNA testing of evidence or discovery of new non-DNA evidence can yield conclusive proof of innocence.  The Project has successfully fought to reverse the convictions of 11 innocent men in California who collectively served a total of more than 100 years in prison.

CIP hires volunteers to work in its office during each trimester.  This is a valuable experience for anyone interested in criminal law or post-conviction law.  Hours are flexible (5-35 hours per week, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).      

Primary duties are to:
•        Evaluate the correspondence and questionnaires from inmates so that CIP can respond appropriately.
•        Write evaluative memoranda summarizing case files and recommending whether or not CIP should continue to investigate the claim on grounds of factual innocence.
•        Assist CIP staff with legal research.

 

The California Innocence Project is a law school clinical program dedicated to releasing wrongfully convicted inmates and providing an outstanding educational experience to the students enrolled in the clinic. Students work alongside CIP staff attorneys on cases where there is strong evidence of factual innocence. Our work protects the integrity of the justice system and seeks to provide justice for all.

 

Founded in 1999 at California Western School of Law, the California Innocence Project (CIP) reviews more than 2,000 claims of innocence from California inmates each year.

Utility Consumers' Action Network

A typical day for an intern would be fielding calls from consumers who dispute bills and services from telephone, cable or internet service providers, and then calling company representatives trying to obtain relief for consumers with disputes.  Then an intern would help prepare and write protests, responses and/or a brief in UCAN cases before the California Public Utilities Commission, and then perhaps end the day by helping draft a Public Records Act request to a local governmental agency seeking information on rates and charges billed to their customers.

 

UCAN has represented the interests of San Diego County utility customers since 1983. UCAN focuses its efforts on the rates and services of San Diego Gas and Electric Company, telecommunications utilities and the City of San Diego Water Department. We do this by intervening in legal proceedings before the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), by supporting litigation in court cases, and by helping individual utility customers with problems they are having with their utility bills and services.

 

UCAN advocates on behalf of San Diego area utility consumers. UCAN focuses primarily on electricity and natural gas utilities, municipal and private water utilities, and telecommunications companies.

 


 

Voices for Children

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  Voices for Children advocates for foster youth through a network of trained volunteers who are empowered by the court to become experts about their case children.

 

By developing a one-on-one relationship with their appointed child they are able to understand their concerns and fears, and in many instances they are the only stable and consistent adult presence in the life of a foster child. Much more than just a mentor, volunteers also make recommendations to the court on the best course of action for the child.
