Where can a philosophy degree take you? We will be exploring this question, with an emphasis on law, during a special lunchtime talk (with pizza for all!) featuring Christina Storm, founder of Lawyers without Borders. She will be telling us about her organization, her work, and her experience with applying a philosophy degree.
Gayle Boyer, pre-law advisor in the Career Development Center, will also be there to let you know about resources available for students considering law-related careers.
Storm is the executive director and founder of Lawyers Without Borders (LWOB) USA, UK and Kenya. She has 18 years’ experience organizing and conducting justice sector work around the world. For 25 years before founding LWOB, she was trial lawyer admitted and actively practicing in both State and Federal courts in civil and criminal matters.
She oversees and manages all operations, including LWOB’s anti-trafficking in persons program in Tanzania, and leads the project development for LWOB’s rule of law programs. Her most recent awards include being listed in Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America (2014-2018), Citizen of the Law award by the Connecticut Bar Association andLifetime Achievement Award by the Connecticut Law Tribune, for her work founding and leading LWOB.
This event is cosponsored by the philosophy department, and the Career Development Center, and made possible by the Nancy K. Rhoden Memorial Fund.
