Trina Grillo Retreat 

15th Annual Trina Grill Public Interest & Social Justice Law Retreat
“Social Justice: Innovation, Creativity, Entrepreneurship”

On March 22 and 23, 2013, the University of Washington School of Law will host the Trina Grillo Retreat, an annual event that is co-sponsored by a consortium of twelve western law schools, including USF, and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT). 

The Retreat provides a unique opportunity for public interest and social justice-oriented law students, faculty members, career counselors, administrators, activist lawyers, and other interested persons to exchange viewpoints, explore current issues of legal and social justice, discuss opportunities to engage in public-interest projects or careers, and exchange information and share experiences with each other. Details on the retreat including, schedule, and availability of funding for attendance will be posted sometime in early February 2013.

Trina Grillo served as a source of inspiration to many law students, professors, and public interest and social justice lawyers, and the retreat held in her honor each year serves as a forum for practitioners, students, and academics to discuss today's challenges to social justice lawyering.

The Retreat embodies the aspirations of Trina’s work against injustice in its many forms and toward diversity and equality. Trina spent most of her life in Oakland, California. The daughter of an Italian mother and a Black Cuban American father, she started her teaching career in 1977 at UC Hastings and taught later at USF Law, in the subject areas of constitutional law, torts, and mediation, while also directing the academic support program. Her published writings encompass themes of women, women of color, multiracialism, mediation, and inequality.
