As part of its 2019 Elizabeth J. Cabraser Summer Lecture Series, local Bay Area nonprofit Legal Aid at Work will present, “The Supreme Court Term in Review: 2018–2019,” a lecture by famed constitutional scholar Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of Berkeley Law and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law. The lecture will take place on Thursday, July 18, 2019 from 12:00 – 1:30pm at Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP in San Francisco. The lecture series, named in honor of Lieff Cabraser founding partner Elizabeth Cabraser, strives to present a wide spectrum of topics and views affecting public interest law.
Dean Chemerinsky, named recently by National Jurist magazine as the most influential person in U.S. legal education, will review the most important decisions made by the U.S. Supreme Court this year and will analyze these newly minted decisions and predict where the Court will go from here.
About Legal Aid at Work
Legal Aid at Work is a nonprofit legal services organization that has been assisting low-income, working families for more than 100 years. We use four main strategies to enforce and strengthen workers’ rights:
- Free Clinics and Helplines
Our Workers’ Rights Clinic, Workers’ Disability Law Clinic, Wage Claim Clinic and numerous helplines provide free direct, individualized help in person or by phone for people across California.
- Free Legal Info
We offer know-your-rights trainings, 100-plus fact sheets, and numerous do-it-yourself guides and toolkits, and other information and resources online and in person.
We bring class and individual actions, limited representations, and impact litigation. This work enforces and strengthens the civil and employment rights of low-wage workers in California and across the country.
- Policy Advocacy
We draft and promote laws, regulations, and policies to strengthen civil and workplace rights at the local, state, and federal level.
