Georgetown University Law Center celebrated its 150th anniversary, honoring long-term growth to become a world-renowned school.
Professor Peter B. Edelman, Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law and Public Policy and Director, Center on Poverty and Inequality, Georgetown Law, will be the featured speaker at the Feerick Center for Social Justice Luncheon Speaker Series event titled "Criminalization of Poverty: Three Intertwined Crises".
The Center on Poverty and Inequality is a leader in developing solutions to the education and employment challenges youth face, which it has identified as largely stemming from underfunded and disconnected secondary, postsecondary, and workforce systems. The status quo is not working for young people, the Center’s faculty director, Professor Peter Edelman told assembled advocates, policymakers and students at a recent event on campus. “We’ve made progress, but it’s not sufficient.”
Respecting persons with disabilities, “There is still [so much] to do in so many ways,” said Professor Peter Edelman, speaking at the Georgetown Journal of Poverty Law & Policy’s Volume 27 Symposium on November 1: “Fulfilling Olmstead: Community Living for People with Disabilities.”
