Gonzaga has hosted a human rights conference in Florence, Italy since 2017 with our partners at Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Italia. The conference is hosted during Gonzaga's law student global studies program each May-June. This video diary showcases our 2019 conference, Freedom of Expression as a Human Right.
For 2020, the conference theme will be Women's Rights as Human Rights, which will take place on June 7-8, 2020 in Florence. Although the conference is academic in nature, we welcome the perspectives of practicing attorneys whose professional experience or research would provide insight on these topics. We also do not require that a proposal be based on international law. Rather, our goal is to gather individual perspectives that collectively provide global insight on women's rights as human rights issues.

We are seeking attorney raters for the Clark County Mock Trial middle school tournament, which is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29th and Thursday, January 30th.
Wednesday, January 29, 2019
Round 1 - 1:00-3:00pm (5 volunteers needed)
Round 2 - 3:15-5:15pm (8 volunteers needed)
Round 3 - 5:30-7:30pm (9 volunteers needed)
Thursday, January 30, 2019
Round 4 - 1:00-3:00pm (9 volunteers needed)
The trials are held at the Clark County Courthouse (1200 Franklin Street, Vancouver, WA). Raters need to meet in the first floor jury assembly room. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your round to get room assignments and score sheets. Each trial lasts about 2 hours.
It’s very easy and fun and you don’t need any specific experience. All you have to do is watch the trial and give some short, positive feedback to the students at the end.
In exchange for your time we can offer our gratitude, some free food and drink, and the enjoyable experience of watching these students participate in this program.
Please email me if you are able to volunteer this year. Thank you!
The WSBA is looking for a new or young lawyer to chair this years Trial Advocacy Program. TAP is a really good trial practice CLE that offers two seminar days followed by a mock trial. It’s geared for folks who would like direct court room experience; the faculty are top-notch presenters who share great tips and tricks. They usually pair a civil and criminal law practitioner together as co-chairs. This year, a criminal law attorney is needed to serve as chair-elect. Kristin Teutscher, a civil law practitioner and last year’s chair-elect, is the current chair.

The Women's Law Student Association Award will be presented for the first time in 2020.

We invite you to share this and information about NCWBA's new membership option for law student groups with a women's law school organization in your network.

The WSBA Board of Governors will appoint one non-voting member to this Court Users Work Group (CUWG). Members of the CUWG serve as subject matter experts on court business processes, court operations, and the use of the Judicial Information System (JIS, also known as DISCIS). Beginning in October, the CUWG will begin the work of assisting the CLJ-CMS project team in the gap analysis for the new case management system. The CUWG will exist throughout the duration of the CLJ-CMS project, which is expected to take at least five years to complete.
The ideal candidate, who will serve as a user representative for the new system, will be a frequent practitioner in courts of limited jurisdiction outside of King County. The CUWG is expected to have monthly, full-day, in-person meetings beginning in October 2019 at AOC’s SeaTac facility. The frequency, in-person requirement and extend duration of the work sessions is necessary to discuss and resolve detailed requirements and business processes required for the configuration of the case management system.
To apply for this position, email a cover letter and resume to email@example.com. The position will remain open until a representative is identified.
