The Liman Program sponsors an annual Public Interest Law Colloquium, bringing
together advocates, scholars, and students from across the country for two days
of discussion. Colloquia have addressed many topics, including: the federal funding
of legal services, encountering the criminal law, low-wage workers and workfare,
the challenges of becoming and staying a public interest lawyer, the role of mass
media in public interest advocacy, public interest lawyering, and public interest
advocacy at the state and local level in an era of high anxiety.
