Clinicians working in the legal field and beyond will come together Nov. 1 at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, Minn., to discuss, innovate and create new pathways in the future of clinical legal education.

Highlights of the conference include a keynote address by Hennepin County District Court Judge Pamela G. Alexander, recipient of the NAACP Profiles in Courage Award and the youngest person and the first African American woman to be appointed a Hennepin County judge; a new clinicians workshop; and a Nov. 1 theatrical performance by Brotherhood, Inc., a non-profit organization founded with the help of the School of Law’s Community Justice Project clinic that works to break the cycles of poverty, unemployment and incarceration of young African American males.
