Please join us on April 7-9, 2006 for an important Symposium entitled Strategies
for Addressing Poverty and Inequality, at the UDC Auditorium, UDC David A.
Clarke School of Law, 4200 Connecticut Ave., NW.

Numerous speakers and panelists will focus on issues of racial fairness, the
access to justice movement and the role of the legal profession and clinical
legal education in addressing poverty and inequality. Substantive issues will
include affordable housing, economic justice and making public systems work for
children. (See below for details)

Featured speakers will include JoAnn Wallace, Executive Director of the National
Legal Aid and Defender Association; Barbara Arnwine, Executive Director of the
Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights; Ted Shaw, Director General of the NAACP
LDF; Wade Henderson Executive Director of the Leadership Conference on Civil
Rights; Prof. Peter Edelman of Georgetown Law Center and Chair of the D.C.
Access to Justice Commission; our own Prof. Edgar S. Cahn; and Helaine Barnett,
President of the Legal Services Corporation.

We will continue to provide more detail, via e-mail, as it becomes available.

This event is free of charge and open to the public. Feel free to forward this
announcement.

ACCREDITATION CELEBRATION:

On Friday evening, after the Symposium sessions, we will celebrate the full
accreditation of our law school. As Edgar Cahn has quipped, the accreditation
of this law school represents victory for "the good guys" in what has been,
taking the long view, our own modern "Thirty Years War." Victories of this
magnitude don't come often. We hope you will come share this one with us!
Again, this event is open to the public and free of charge.
