Gibbs Law Group attorney Amanda Karl to speak on panel, “Unpacking Public Interest Law”
April 12, 2021
Gibbs Law Group attorney Amanda Karl will speak on a People’s Parity Project panel titled “Unpacking Public Interest Law.” This panel put on by PPP will feature a group of social justice-oriented attorneys aiming to unpack the umbrella concept of public interest lawyering. Panelists will discuss what law students might look for in a career by exploring what lawyering can look like outside of a narrow “corporate practice” or “public interest” lens, which are too frequently presented as the only two available paths for law students.
