Law In Motion Service Program

The Law In Motion program, consistent with the University's Jesuit mission, provides opportunities for the law school community to reflect on issues of social justice and access to equal justice through various activities and events.

History of Law In Motion

Law In Motion ("LIM") was developed in 1999 by Dean Jeffrey Brand, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and the then SBA President. It began as a "Service Saturday" program, but quickly expanded to sponsor activities all year long, including during orientation week. Activities have included serving meals at St. Anthony's Foundation Dining Room, hosting an annual Halloween Fair and Costume Parade for local elementary school students, providing tax filing assistance to low income individuals, making and enjoying breakfast with children at Edgewood Center for Children, visiting and speaking with prisoners at San Quentin Prison, participating in habitat restoration and landscape maintenance projects at Golden Gate National Parks, and spring break immersion programs in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco and in New Orleans.

Why Participate in Law In Motion

You do not have to be interested in or dedicated to a career in public interest law to participate in LIM service activities. People participate for a variety of reasons; because they want to take advantage of a chance to away from their books or because they want to spend some time with friends and do a little good for the community at the same time. Public service is integral to a just, functioning, and forward-moving community. Public service can be personally rewarding. Everyone is welcome to join.

Upcoming Events
