Does this mean they stand on the tables and yell at judges and stuff? Cross-dressing would be pretty rebellious. These kids today – I’ll have to ask Ernest over a LawMeme about it – he seems so polite and thoughtful.
- Each year the Rebellious Lawyering conference, a student-run, weekend-long event focused on public interest law, draws hundreds of people to Yale Law School.
This year the conference will be held on February 21-23, and online registration is currently open. (Further details on the conference schedule and registration policies are available on the Rebellious Lawyering website.)
It is not easy to reduce the Rebellious Lawyering conference to a simple description. One of the co-directors of this year’s program, Alexandra Block ’04, says, “Our aim is to not have a theme for the conference.” Instead, Rebellious Lawyering covers a broad spectrum of topics–from activism to politics to litigation–all with an eye toward how law students and other activists can make a difference in their communities. The intent is to have a program with something of interest for everyone who attends.
I want to see young lawyers throw tea in the Boston Harbor.
