The Miami Law Clinics present a speaker series to help equip law students with tools to advance racial and social justice in their work. The series will supplement the training provided in individual law school courses by addressing overarching themes and transferable skills to fight for racial equity and transformative change across diverse practice areas.

Learn tools to mitigate the impact of secondary trauma, sometimes called vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue, often experienced by social justice lawyers and other helping professionals from indirect exposure to client’s traumatic experiences. The session will also explore the impact of trauma on clients with a particular emphasis on intergenerational trauma and stressors caused by systemic racism.
