Societal Impact Fair Huge Sucess

The objective of the Societal Impact Fair was to increase community awareness of the practice-ready programs offered by CharlotteLaw. All 17 clinics, pro bono, and Small Practice Center programs were displayed using poster board sessions. Faculty, staff, students, and clients were on hand to speak to members of local nonprofits, business and community leaders, as well as Charlotte citizens about the programs. The fair brought in over 80 external constituents to the school as well as a local news station. The newest clinic, Homeless Prevention, was a hot topic among the media as seen in the below news clip. President Chidi Ogene commented that the event was a huge success and can be a springboard to more events that invite the community inside the walls of the school to spark conversation, collaboration, and mission integration. Video and written testimonials of clients who have benefited from the clinics were collected to be utilized in further branding campaigns.
