Prof. Tatum and IPLP Staff Attorney Mark McMillan to be Panelists at Human Rights Retreat

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, Melissa Tatum (Research Professor of Law and Associate Director, IPLP) and Mark McMillan (IPLP Staff Attorney, SJD 2010), will serve as panelists at the 13th Annual Trina Grillo Public Interest and Social Justice Law Retreat in San Francisco. The theme of the Retreat is “Human Rights: At Home and Abroad;" Tatum and McMillan will participate in the panel on Indigenous Rights. Tatum will address Indigenous peoples' right to access their sacred lands, and McMillan will address a rights-based approach to developing Aboriginal governments in Australia.

The Trina Grillo Retreat is an annual event co-sponsored by a consortium of 12 western law schools, including the University of San Francisco and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT). The retreat provides a unique opportunity for professors, practitioners, students, and activists to explore current issues of legal and social justice and discuss opportunities for public interest projects or careers.
