Mercer Law School’s Annual Law Day celebration is scheduled for Friday, March 9. This year’s Law Day will celebrate the University’s new Law and Public Service Program, which is housed in the Law School, and honor Law School graduates working in public service.
Keynote speaker for the Law Day luncheon is Doug Ammar, executive director of the Georgia Justice Project. Ammar is a graduate of Davidson College and the Washington & Lee Law School. He is in demand as a speaker both nationally and internationally, and has spoken about the Georgia Justice Project’s innovative and holistic approach to representing clients in Israel and Italy in the last year. More information about the Georgia Justice project is available at www.gjp.org.
The Law and Public Service Program at Mercer began in July 2006 and offers public service learning for students through clinical courses, public interest practicum opportunities, and volunteer community service.
