Gerald P. López’s Rebellious Lawyering (1992) has had a lasting, far reaching influence on generations of community lawyers, starting when the lawyers were law students in law schools.
Law students at Yale Law School have organized an annual public interest law conference called RebLaw.
“RebLaw is the nation’s largest student-run public interest conference.”
RebLaw encourages law students, public interest law practitioners, and community activists to discuss “innovative, progressive approaches to law and social change… in the spirit of Gerald Lopez‘s Rebellious Lawyering.”
True to Jerry López’s lifelong teachings, the RebLaw conferences “seek to build a community of law students, practitioners, and activists seeking to work in the service of social change movements and to challenge hierarchies of race, wealth, gender, and expertise within legal practice and education.”
For information about this year’s RebLaw student conference, see this webpage: RebLaw 2015 at Yale Law School.
