Law as a Tool for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution
Mark Schwartz ‘75
Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
Kohlberg Hall, Room 228
Swarthmore College (directions)
This talk and discussion will feature a Swarthmore alum who has run his own private law practice for decades in service of social justice.
Mark Schwartz will discuss how the law can also be used as a tool for conflict resolution. Whether supporting the gay community in responding to discrimination, women facing workplace harassment, racist policies that
marginalize people of color, or whistleblowers exposing corruption in the public and private sectors, Schwartz works tirelessly to ensure that justice is served and that conflict is resolved fairly.
