Trina Grillo Retreat
On March 22-23, UW Law hosted the 15th annual Trina Grillo social justice and public
interest retreat. This annual event is a product of a consortium of west coast law schools
and the Society of American Law Teachers. The topic of this year's retreat was Social
Justice Lawyering: Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship.
It attracted over 80 participants (law students, law faculty and staff,
local public interest practitioners, community members, funders and others)
from Washington state, California, Colorado, Oregon, Maryland and Nevada.
Panel topics included creating new ventures, finding funding and marketing for innovation.
The retreat also featured incubator sessions where several participants shared their social
justice vision and worked in small facilitated groups to refine their vision and develop
strategies to advance them.
