First Regional Meeting: Modest Means/Incubator Projects in California
The California Commission on Access to Justice invites you to attend the first regional meeting for the Modest Means/Incubator Project on Thursday, April 24 at the State Bar of California Office in San Francisco.
The Modest Means/Incubator Project is part of a national movement intended to explore the practical training of new lawyers and couple it with partial solutions for the struggles of the underserved middle class in discrete legal matters such as labor code violations, family law conflicts, consumer debt complaints and more. The Commission’s promotion of this project includes regional meetings and subsequent grants to applicants that best propose projects which incorporate the best practices of existing and proposed incubator collaboratives.
At this inaugural meeting, you will learn about successful incubator models that train new attorneys to address the modest means justice gap, meet and collaborate with key stakeholders, and learn about funding opportunities.
When:Thursday, April 24, 2014, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Where: State Bar of California
