Fighting for Women's Equality

An Afternoon of Title IX Training - Part 2 of ERA's Pro Bono Attorneys Network training

04/26/2019 11:30 AM - 04:45 PM PT

Description

Join ERA’s team on April 26, 2019 for an afternoon of training and expertise on Title IX and survivor-centered legal advocacy. Learn about this ever changing and extremely urgent area of law from attorney advocates, on-campus faculty experts, and Title IX litigators. CLE credit is available for all portions of this training.

  • This afternoon of training constitutes Part 2 of a 3-part training, required to join ERA's Pro Bono Attorneys Network to End Sexual Violence in Education.

  • Interested in joining the Network, but missed Part 1? We'd love to help you catch up, and you're welcome to join us for Part 2! We can send you materials from Part 1.

  • Not yet a member of our Pro Bono Attorneys Network? Not a problem! We'd love to have you join us -- no commitment to the Network is required to attend this training. We are excited to offer attorneys, law students, and other legal professionals these expert trainings on Title IX and the legal advocacy on behalf of survivors of campus sexual assault. (Of course, we hope that our trainings light a fire within you to join us in this work.)

 

Afterwards, join us for a HAPPY HOUR MIXER! Following the trainings, join us across the street at the offices of Equal Rights Advocates to eat, drink, and chat with ERA staff, board members and other attorneys passionate about supporting survivors of campus sexual assault.
