This year’s annual Mirror of Justice Lecture, sponsored by the Pope John Paul II Guild of Catholic Lawyers, traced the evolution of the law school’s legal clinic and highlighted its place in the local community as an oasis of justice, compassion and help. Professor Ellen Scully, who was the director of Columbus Community Legal Services for 25 years, noted in her Oct. 28 remarks that the clinic was patterned from the beginning after a law firm, a model that has worked exceptionally well over the years. “Columbus Community Legal Services is a special place, reflective of the mission of the Church and the law school. Everybody is a stakeholder in it. It attracts special people,” said Scully.

A summary of the event is available here.
