About the Trina Grillo Retreat
For the past several years, the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) has co-sponsored the Trina Grillo Public Interest and Social Justice Law Retreat with a consortium of law schools. SALT established the Retreat to honor the memory of Trina Grillo (1948-1996), a former professor at USF School of Law and Santa Clara Law School who was a dedicated social activist and justice advocate. The retreat embodies the aspirations of Trina’s work against injustice, in its many forms, and toward diversity and equality.
The Trina Grillo Retreat – What is it and why should I attend?
- The Retreat provides a unique opportunity for public interest and social justice-oriented law students, faculty, staff and practitioners to exchange viewpoints, explore career opportunities and formulate strategies for social justice.
- The Retreat offers public-interest minded law school students an opportunity to break the isolation by meeting and networking with other students from around the country.
- The Retreat not only provides students with a network while in school, but also provides the foundation for a professional network to support their public interest ambitions as their careers develop.
- The Retreat can spawn creative ways to approach social change using the law as an instrument.
