15th Annual Charity GalaIn support of our community outreach programs and the scholarship fund
Party Like There's No "To-Maya"!
Saturday, December 1st, 2012
Proceeds from the fundraiser make it possible for us to give back to the public through activities that support and encourage the availability of civil legal aid for the poor, the vulnerable and the underserved populations. Proceeds also encourage diversity in the profession by providing financial assistance to students who might not otherwise be able to attend law school.

In addition to providing $23,500 in scholarships for deserving law school students, proceeds from this annual fundraising event provided $35,000 in grants to community organizations that strive to improve the justice system, to further equal access to justice, and to improve the quality of justice through public service and law-related education.
