A4E strives to create a community and outlet for those who came to law school with an eye towards using their skills to advocate for positive change for youth in schools. Many, though certainly not all, of our members have prior experience in schools, which helps inform the focus of our projects and fuels our interest in continuously learning about the field.
A4E is not a member-based organization – we welcome any and all Harvard students who are interested to join us at events, organizational meetings, and project tasks. Some recent events have included:
- Education Law Week – a week of free lunch talks and discussions focused on current legal issues in K-12 and higher education
- Trainings for law students on skills such as interviewing children and trauma-informed lawyering, in collaboration with Harvard’s Child and Youth Advocates
- Panels on careers in education law
- Student panels on summer jobs and internships in education law
- Events related to juvenile justice issues
- Mixers to bring together students across Harvard graduate campuses (including the Harvard Business School, Harvard Graduate School of Education and Harvard Kennedy School)
