• Party Under the Stars and Raffle for Justice

CEJ's Associates Committee will again be holding its young/new lawyer event, Party Under the Stars, on September 13, 2017. Associates, new lawyers, law students, and new members of the legal community will gather to join old and new friends and learn about legal aid and CEJ. The event is free and we will provide beer, wine, and pizza. E-mail us to RSVP or for more information.

As part of the event, we will hold our annual Raffle for Justice. You can buy raffle tickets online for fun items like restaurant gift certificates, Blazer Tickets, and themed baskets. You do not need to be present to win. Click here for more information.
