Fellow Practice Panel: Fraud, Identity Theft, Title IX Advocacy and Sexual Assault

March 19, 2020

On January 7, the first - ever “Fellow Practice Panel”, facilitated by NCVLI, was co-presented by two Equal Justice Works fellows, Katy Reed and Christopher Merkle. These attorneys shared their expertise to 20 of their peers on the practice of rights advocacy.

 

The session included overviews of key areas of law followed by a discussion on a case hypothetical that explored rights advocacy in the context of polyvictimation, focusing on victims of fraud, identity theft and sexual violence. One of the Fellows involved, Meredith Hogan, talked about her experience: “Participating in this panel presentation was a great opportunity to collaborate with other Fellows, learn more about them as individuals, and share our experiences,” she said.
