Fleming Scholars Program

We particularly encourage scholars who are currently working at legal services organizations to submit abstracts and to participate in the conference. The Fleming Scholars Program was launched two years ago in memory of our colleague Anne Fleming, who was a legal aid attorney before turning to academia. The program provides support, including conference travel costs and mentorship opportunities, for legal aid lawyers with scholarly aspirations. Please contact us if you are interested.

We look forward to seeing you in March 2023!
