This podcast features Michael Pope, Brooklyn Law School’s Class of 2010 who recently received an Equal Justice Works Fellowship to provide civil legal representation to New York’s indigent youth reentering society after a criminal or juvenile delinquency conviction. The conversation explains how the Community Youth Reentry Project will work. The New York law firm of Morrison and Foerster LLP will sponsored the project which is hosted by Youth Represent, founded and directed by Laurie Parise, Class of 2004. While Pope and Parise spent a great deal of time and effort developing the project, Brooklyn Law School Professors Michael Cahill, Susan Herman and Cynthia Godsoe and Elizabeth Kane, director of public service programs, provided much needed support and guidance.
