This is truly a unique event with proceeds supporting Southwestern's Domestic Violence Advocacy Initiative (DVAI).

 DVAI LOGOThe DVAI provides attorneys with zero to three years of legal experience with the opportunity to gain valuable legal training and expertise. Participants work with established public interest and legal aid organizations to provide free or low-cost legal assistance to victims and survivors of domestic violence in underrepresented, marginalized, or underserved communities.
