Kim Stafford

Oregon’s Poet Laureate Kim Stafford


Author Kim Stafford, Oregon’s Poet Laureate and Director of the Northwest Writing Institute, will lead a conversation on language, story, truth, and generosity.  Come join the Family Law Society and the Educational Law Society as we work toward gaining what is needed to be not just good lawyers, but great advocates as well.

 The problems of our time are political, ecological, economic—but the solutions are cultural. How do people speak their truth? How do we listen eloquently? If communication is the fundamental alternative to violence and injustice, what is the work of each voice among us?

Lunch will be provided.
