NAACP Legal Defense Fund Attorney Delivers Public Interest Keynote
The Georgia State Law Center for Access to Justice hosted its annual Public Interest Keynote virtually on Sept. 1. This year’s speaker was Samuel Spital, director of litigation for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
Professor Lauren Sudeall, faculty director of the Center for Access to Justice, said that she chose Spital because of the timely nature of the Legal Defense Fund’s work and because many Georgia State Law students have an interest in pro bono and public service legal work.
“What better legal organization than the Legal Defense Fund, which has been a constant presence in the fight for racial justice,” Sudeall said. “We’re lucky to have someone like Sam join us to talk about the incredible work he has done at LDF, and also about the path that led him there. We hope it will serve as inspiration for our students, regardless of the path they choose to follow.”
