Heart of the Mission is this year's theme for Celebration of Service, our annual opportunity to honor those men and women who most embody Law Students in Court’s passion for turning “justice for all” into a living, breathing reality. The evening convenes a wide range of legal professionals—from newly-minted alums to partners at the area’s most well-respected law firms—along with social justice advocates and friends, to celebrate those luminaries who’ve helped ensure that in Washington, D.C. demographics don’t determine destiny. Celebration of Service is our largest fundraiser of the year and the proceeds will help fund out growing Expungement Clinic. We hope you can join us and raise a toast to our honorees.
