On March 1-2, 2013, ACS held its first Student Convention at Stanford Law School. Using the 50th anniversary of Gideon v. Wainwright as a springboard for conversation, student leaders from across the country convened to discuss the legacy of Gideon, the future of work on behalf of low income individuals and the critical role that students can play in delivering on Gideon’s promise of a more just society. The Students as Advocates panel highlighted initiatives undertaken by law students that engage and empower local communities. Speakers: Kathleen Clyde, Angela McCray, and Adam Morfeld Moderator: Meredith Gallen, ACS UCLA Chapter Co-President
