EJU Training Sessions Requested
This year's EJU Training Committee would like to weave the theme, "Hope in Challenging Time : Rising Above Adversity" throughout our CLE sessions. As EJU Planning Committee Chair Harrison McIver stated, "We submit it recognizes that our clients in particular are facing many challenges but yet we as legal aid firms provide “ hope” for a better life reflective of successes and impact that can be chronicled over our rich history . With that history, we can overcome the adversities they and indeed we face in these “ troubled” times."
