Law professor Christine Cimini, a former staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, will talk about “The Real Work Lawyers Do” noon today in the Kirby Hall of Civil Rights auditorium. She will stay for an open reception at 1:30 p.m. in room 4 (multipurpose room).

Sponsored by Students for Social Justice and the Legal Professions Program, the event is free and open to the public. (It originally was scheduled for yesterday.) Pizza and dessert will be provided.

Giving a personal look at the practice of law, Cimini will offer insights into “what it is (and isn’t) all about being a lawyer,” using actual cases involving political asylum, the death penalty, and predatory lending.

A member of the faculty of University of Denver College of Law, Cimini is a visiting professor at Cornell School of Law this school year. In addition to working for the ACLU, she has been a Legal Aid lawyer in Oregon and Connecticut and a clinical teaching fellow in Yale Law Clinic for three years. She specializes in welfare reform issues and representation of people with HIV and AIDS.

Cimini earned her bachelor’s degree from Clark University and J.D. from University of Connecticut School of Law.
