Robin spoke at the Community Lawyering Symposium on Holistic Defense at Middlebury College
Robin Steinberg spoke at the Community Lawyering Symposium at the Seton Hall Law Center for Social Justice Scholars. She was joined by other attorneys, advocates and students at this interactive forum discussing what it means to be a community lawyer.
Community Lawyering seeks to critically examine litigation and creatively combine it with non-traditional forms of legal advocacy and grassroots actions to address the legal and non-legal problems of clients. The Symposium explored the concept of Community Lawyering, its role in public interest legal work, and its position in social justice movements. Attorneys in the areas of criminal justice, housing, and immigrant rights spoke about their experiences with Community Lawyering.
