Champions for Justice Reception 6:00 p.m.
Join us as we shine a light on RWU Law students and alumni and celebrate their dedication to serving low-income and disenfranchised communities in New England and around the country.
Dinner & Awards 6:45 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
We will applaud the accomplishments of our 2017 Champions for Justice award recipients and salute the meaningful differences they have made.
Public Interest Law Auction - 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
A new twist on an annual tradition bringing together the Bench and Bar to raise funds in support of social justice programs. Items will include one-of-a-kind experiences designed to connect members of the legal community with law students and one another!
This year's Public Interest Auction will feature opportunities to connect with the RWU Law community of champions. Each of the items auctioned this evening will focus on strengthening professional connections and building new relationships. Tonight is not about auctioning “stuff.” Instead, most of the auction items are “experience packages” featuring individuals who share our mission of public service, access to justice and the value of experiential education.
Registration is required for this event. Tickets will not be available at the door. Online registration closes on Friday, January 20, 2017.
