The Tenth Annual Washington University Law School Access to Equal Justice Colloquium, sponsored by the Clinical Legal Education Program, will be held on Friday, March 19, 2010.  The goal of the colloquium is to provide a forum for university faculty and students, lawyers, judges, community leaders, and government officials to examine efforts and barriers to access to counsel and to more expansive notions of justice that reflect the needs, circumstances and wishes of its constituents.  

The morning sessions will be devoted to exploring a new theory for right to counsel in a variety of civil matters. The afternoon sessions will address school to prison pipeline issues and environmental justice in Herculaneum. Break-out sessions will include panels regarding criminal non-support courts, judicial and political access of religious organizations and Guardian ad litem representation of youth aging out of foster care. 

We hope that this forum will help identify new tools for understanding and overcoming barriers to the equal administration of and access to justice and that it will help devise approaches that will be more responsive to the recipients of state-sponsored justice and social services. 

The colloquium is free and open to the public; participants must pre-register to reserve a spot, receive materials, and join the lunch workgroups. The colloquium has been approved for 7.8 Missouri Continuing Legal Education credits (including 4 ethics credit) and 7.8 Guardian ad Litem CLE credits. This conference is free and open to the public, however registration is required.
