More than 200 students gathered on Miami Law’s central courtyard, “The Bricks,” early in the morning on Thursday, August 14, to participate in the University of Miami School of Law's 15th annual HOPE Day of Service. On this day new and returning Miami Law students made their way to 14 different sites across Miami-Dade County, including Virginia Key, Homestead, Hialeah and South Miami where student volunteers served at parks, environmental clean ups, animal rescue missions, health care centers, and preschools.
HOPE is the first stop for students interested in developing legal advocacy skills and finding ways to use advocacy to provide access to justice for others. Our staff and director, Marni Lennon, Assistant Dean for Public Interest and Pro Bono, welcome you and look forward to helping you serve others through pro bono and community outreach on a local, national, and international level.
