Law and Democracy Lecture
Submitted By Chabot College
Chabot College will kick off International Democracy Day celebrations with its Third Annual Law and Democracy Day Lecture by Tirien Steinbach, Executive Director of the East Bay Community Law Center, "Justice, Not Just Us: Improving Access to Legal Services," on Thursday, September 19. The lecture series is sponsored by the Chabot College Law and Democracy Program, Student Senate, and the Office of the President. The event is free and open to the public. Temporary parking permit is $2.
Ms. Steinbach's lecture is the third in Chabot College's new Law and Democracy Lecture Series. One of Chabot's college-wide learning goals is civic responsibility. A primary goal of the Law and Democracy Lecture Series is to expose students and the broader community to a wide range of ideas and policy issues that impact our communities. Ms. Steinbach's lecture will focus on the problems with access to lawyers, judges, and the courts, what that limitation means for people with limited access, and what it means (more structurally) for democracy.
