Making a Difference

Former Judge Donald Horowitz and Seattle University School of Law Professor from Practice John McKay will hold the third in their series of symposia designed to encourage students and lawyers to pursue public interest work at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, in Room C1 of Sullivan Hall.

“Skills, Opportunities, Barriers: Attaining, Maintaining and Increasing Capability, Effectiveness, Freedom and Fulfillment,” is open to the public, and no RSVP is required.

Horowitz and McKay continue their popular series by focusing on the development of excellent professional skills and exploring both the opportunities and the barriers to serving the public interest as a lawyer. Working for the powerless and the poor requires that attorneys continuously learn and improve their skills – not only for personal success, but also in order to make a difference in the lives of clients and in the community. Horowitz and McKay, along with guest speakers, will show how choosing public service can shape both the professional and personal lives of lawyers.

The session is the third in the four-part series “Making A Difference: Using Your Law Degree to Make the World a Better Place No Matter Where You Go in Your Career – and Life.”

The event is co-sponsored by the School of Law’s Center for Professional Development and Access to Justice Institute. For more information or questions, please contact Katie Tiehen at the Access to Justice Institute at (206) 398.4173 or
