Coming Up!: Commonwealth Justice Weekend (Jan. 12-15)

Last year, about two dozen attorneys gathered at Natural Bridge State Park to make friends and learn about the work of other do-gooder public interest and private attorneys in Kentucky. We're getting together again in a couple of weeks. 

To join us, do the "To the Woods Two-Step" today!

Step One: Call Natural Bridge State Park or book your room or cabin online. If you call (606-663-2214), the name to give for our block of rooms is "Commonwealth Justice." If you book online, the group code is 2022.

Step TwoSend me an RSVP to let me know you're coming.

Refresher: Do-gooder public interest and private attorneys are getting together for a second year on from January 12-15, 2018 (Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend) for some hiking, board games, commiserating, and collaborating. 

You can attend for a day or all weekend. This is a family-friendly event with the main goal of meeting and becoming friends with other people who are using their law degrees to try to help the most vulnerable and kicked-around people in Kentucky. 

If you know someone who would be interested in a weekend like the one we had last year only better, please send those lawyers a link to the Google form above and ask them to fill it out.

As a reminder, we have a Slack group. Currently, it only gets occasional use, but hopefully that will change going forward. You can invite your friends and colleagues to join the Slack group by sending them this form to fill out: (Admission is by invitation-only.)

Looking forward to seeing everyone again or for the first time.

Commonwealth Justice Conference: POSTPONED

As you may have already guessed, I have to postpone the Commonwealth Justice conference I had hoped to host in August. 

Apparently, someone radically underestimated how hard starting a law firm would be and how much time he would be able to devote to organizing and hosting a conference for social justice-minded attorneys and organizers in Kentucky. 

I don't know when the conference will occur—probably sometime in 2014—but I am committed to making it happen. Thank you for your early support of the idea and stay tuned for updates.
