Public Interest Alumni Mentor-in-Residence: David Sapp, JD '05
October 10, 2012 12:45pm - 2:00pm
We are thrilled that David Sapp, JD '05, will be participating in our annual Public Interest Alumni Mentor-in-Residence series. While at SLS, David served as a Public Interest Fellow, chaired the Public Interest Law Student Association, chaired the SPILF auction, and volunteered with Fresh Lifelines for Youth. Before law school, David worked for a government relations firm, for a congressman on Capitol Hill, and on a congressional campaign in Florida.
After law school graduation, David clerked for the Honorable Myron H. Thompson on the District Court for the Middle District of Alabama and then joined Advocates for Children’s Services in Durham, North Carolina as a Skadden Fellow. He then clerked for the Honorable Raymond C. Fisher on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit before joining the ACLU of Southern California as a staff attorney, where he focuses on education and juvenile justice issues. He is also our 2012 Miles L. Rubin Public Interest Award recipient and will be honored at the dinner on Thursday, October 11.
This lunchtime series features recent alumni from the last 3-10 years who work in a broad array of public interest practice areas and can share their insight and experience with students. We will have an intimate lunch discussion with up to 15 students maximum. RSVP below!
