Celebration of Service Is Just Around the Corner | DCLAW Students


Please join us in supporting our distinguished allies in reform, Michele Roberts and Marc Morial—and let’s have some serious fun!

We promise a lively evening of great  food, people, and cheer. With music by the Gordon Tenney Trio, featuring Patricia Lyles on vocals. Come solo or bring friends and colleagues. We hope you can make it.

Celebration of Service is our biggest fundraiser of the year, when we ask our supporters to invest in our efforts to protect the legal rights of the District’s most vulnerable residents. Our students and attorneys fight to:

  • support tenants’ rights and preserve affordable housing
  • end mass incarceration
  • advocate for youth caught up in the juvenile justice system
  • help District residents clear their criminal records and get a second chance at life

We hope you join us by purchasing tickets ($75-!50), giving generously, or sponsoring the event through an individual or organizational pledge.


A Distinguished Honor—and Serious Fun!

We are thrilled to honor Michele Roberts and LSIC Alumnus (’83) Marc Morial  for their extraordinary leadership in protecting the rights and dignity of the underserved. 100% of event proceeds will support LSIC clinic and pro bono programs benefiting low-income D.C. residents.

Some Light-Hearted Reasons to Join Us!

Play offs? Fingers crossed…Michele Roberts is donating Wizards Tickets for the 2017 season. Get lucky!
