September 30, 2014

The Homeless Prevention Team of the Charlotte ACLU, in cooperation with Legal Aid of North Carolina, will provide the programming for the ACLU’s general meeting on October 5th at Unitarian Universalist Church of Christ at 7:00 p.m.   The Charlotte ACLU’s general meetings are open to the public and the public is encouraged to attend.

At the meeting, District Court Judge Rebecca Tin will present her perspective on the courtroom process where tenants at risk of losing their home must represent themselves without an attorney.  Former Civil Rights Clinic member and current Legal Aid staff member, Isaac Sturgill, and Shanae Auguste from Legal Aid will join her in that presentation.  They will show a film that depicts a woman facing eviction and how she prepares for her court appearance.  Following the presentation will be a question and answer session.

Legal Dose Pro Bono Week Special Reports

October 31, 2012

This week the Legal Dose is bringing you three Pro Bono Week Special Reports.

Special Report 1 features an interview with Professor Cindy Adcock, Director of Experiential Education at the Charlotte School of Law. She discusses the focus on experiential education as well as many ways students can get involved in the course offerings.

Special Report 2 features an interview with 2012 Charlotte Law graduate and former Civil Rights Clinic member, Isaac Sturgill. During this report Isaac shares his journey through experiential education and how it helped him get his first job at Legal Aid.

In Special Report 3 we close out Pro Bono week by speaking to several of the special guests on campus at Charlotte Law: Professor Gene Nichols, Erik Ortega and Cait Clarke. As the Access to Justice Symposium looked at the Civil Gideon movement, we got many looks at how people nationwide are impacting the movement.

Thanks for listening!
