In an effort to fulfill its mission to serve the underserved, Charlotte School of Law will host a community-wide event to showcase pro bono and clinic programs that offer free legal services to area citizens that include immigration asylum, criminal record expungement, and domestic abuse representation. Clients who have benefited from these services, faculty and students will be on-hand to talk to the public about these services. Area nonprofit organizations will also be present to demonstrate their services to the underserved populations in Charlotte.
The event is scheduled for September 17th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on the uptown campus of Charlotte School of Law located in the Charlotte Plaza. This is a free event and parking is validated. Please RSVP to Dallas Bragg firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Our students and faculty provide thousands of hours each your of service to the under-served through pro bono and our practice-ready programs. We are excited to share the stories about this service from area citizens who wouldn’t normally be able to have legal assistance for their problems and needs,” said Jay Conison, Dean for Charlotte School of Law.
About Charlotte School of Law: Charlotte School of Law (CSL) is an ABA-accredited law school located in the uptown area of Charlotte, North Carolina. The institution was designed and developed by legal educators who saw the need for change in legal education at a time when established law schools have been slow in reacting to the dramatic changes that are reshaping the legal profession. It increasingly is recognized that leadership in legal education is “up for grabs,” and that the benchmark institutions for the 21st Century will be those that adapt most readily and effectively to new market realities. Charlotte School of Law has introduced a program of study that centers on experiential learning and student outcomes to produce graduates who have been readied for practice. The Chinese law firm partnership is reflective of the innovations that will continue to strengthen the school’s delivery of value to students, alignment with the market, and social utility.
