Wayne Law dean's op-ed celebrates Law Day 2013

May 1, 2013

Jocelyn Benson, Wayne State University Law School interim dean, wrote an op-ed celebrating Law Day 2013. She notes that Wayne Law strives to address challenges of access and fairness in our legal system through various mechanisms including Wayne Law's Free Legal Aid Clinic which provides legal counsel for people in need while training its students to serve the public good. At the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, scholars engage in groundbreaking research and programming to develop new solutions to addressing Metro Detroit's inequalities. And over 11,000 Wayne Law alums are spread throughout Michigan and the world, working to improve access to the law in a variety of ways. Benson concludes: "Ensuring access to justice for all is a goal we must strive for every day, not just on Law Day."
