Law Students Unite!

Are you a law student? Can you make it to the Boston Area in February? If so, this post is for you.
Law Students For Choice is holding their first ever national conference on February 5th and 6th at Harvard Law School. Confirmed legal panels include international reproductive rights issues, abstinence-only education, Latina priorities in the reproductive health movement, the courts, and anti-choice strategies to change the legal status of pregnant women.
In addition to legal panels, workshops focused on activism skills will provide helpful advice for on-campus events and campaigns, professional training, and curriculum reform. Opening and closing messages will be given from Louise Melling (President of the ACLU’s Reproductive Freedom Project) and Elizabeth Cavendish (Interim Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice America).
Law student registration for the weekend conference will be a sliding scale of $35-50. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Boston-area law students are currently coordinating a network of couches for activists to sleep on as needed and many law students have funds available for conference travel.
Law students are young leaders in the reproductive rights movement. This is a chance to meet, build knowledge and skills, expand networks, and turn our ideas into action.
