Our two panels were on gentrification in the Bay Area and on how attorneys can effectively work with organizers in the Movement for Black Lives. We also held a disorientation program for 1Ls about getting oriented to law school, mostly intended to build a sense of progressive student community on campus. Throughout the fall quarter, we ran a campaign sending out weekly notices to the student body on “news you might have missed,” highlighting new stories on issues we care about that received less mainstream attention and adding commentary on how students can take action.
