Justice for All: Demanding Accessibility for Underrepresented Communities in the Law

Friday, November 4, 2022 – Virtual Program (Zoom)

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM EST

The phrase “Justice for All” dates back to the founding of our country, but it has become increasingly clear that many groups of people are often left out of the “All” category. A persons race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, citizenship, ability, age, and/or socioeconomic status are just a few of the factors that lock them out of receiving equal treatment in our justice system. People in these groups have limited access to lawyers, legal services, and legal education, which undermines the principle of justice that is the essence of the U.S. Constitution. 

This symposium welcomes RWU Law Review’s newest journal, Justice for All, in its inaugural year by demanding the expansion of “All”  in the phrase “Justice for All.” Led by a mix of professionals and students, the panel will discuss how different legal services and legal education programs can be made more accessible and inclusive to traditionally marginalized communities. By creating more accessible spaces, we can finally begin working towards achieving justice for everyone. 

The symposium will be presented as a fully virtual experience. Those invited to speak will have an opportunity to publish a written piece on their topic in Justice for All.
