Joseph D. Kearney and Joshua L. Gimbel
Posner Pro Bono Exchange
David Stern, Executive Director of Equal Justice Works, with Mike Gousha
Induction of Law Students into Pro Bono Society Reception (immediately follows at 5:00 p.m.)
This event honors Marquette University Law School students who have performed 50 or more hours of pro bono service during their law school careers; students who have achieved 120 or more hours receive special recognition. These hours are entirely voluntary, the students receiving neither monetary compensation nor academic credit. The event also remembers Gene Posner, L'36: the Gene and Ruth Posner Foundation generously supports the Law School's public service work.
Join us as we celebrate future attorneys in a ceremony that includes a conversation with a prominent national figure in public interest law.
With nearly 30 years of experience in public interest law, David Stern has helped develop Equal Justice Works, in Washington, D.C., into a leading organization in creating public interest law opportunities. Serving as executive director of Equal Justice Works for the past 17 years, he has quadrupled its size and reach. Mr. Stern was recognized by Legal Times in 2008 as one of the "Greatest Washington Lawyers in the Past 30 Years." He is a graduate of Union College and the Georgetown University Law Center.
