IHRLC 15th Anniversary
There was so much to celebrate at the Clinic’s 15th Anniversary Dinner on September 28, 2013. We filled the Warren Room (the old café Zeb) to capacity with 80 alums and students, representatives from our community partners, Boalt faculty, and friends. We were delighted to have alums from every year of the Clinic’s history in attendance!
We're also thrilled to report that we have received over $17,000 in honor of our anniversary!
We are using these gifts to fund clinic students to spend the summer of their 2L year working at one of the Clinic’s partner organizations. Boalt Alumni Board member and Clinic Alumna Kathleen Kelly Janus ’03 and Ted Janus provided a generous gift of $10,000 to seed this initiative. Our initial goal is to raise $20,000 to fund 1-2 students for the next two summers. We are well on our way to meeting this target and additional funds raised now will allow us to sustain this fellowship program. Our goal is 100% participation, and contributions of any amount help! We hope you will consider making a gift to support the summer fellowship program.
You can donate here.
The outpouring of interest and support is a testament to the value and meaning of the Clinic experience.
