Young Women in Law’s 7th Annual Charity Gala – Wednesday April 5th

Young Women in Law’s 7th Annual Charity Gala presented by The Heller Group and sponsored by WEL Partners is this Wednesday, April 5th

Keynote Speaker: Laura Nirider, Clinical Assistant Professor at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Lawyer, Project Director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, and Counsel to Brendan Dassey, whose legal battle received global attention after the airing of the Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer.

All funds raised will be donated to the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, an organization spearheading efforts to exonerate wrongfully convicted youth and drive criminal justice reforms that will prevent children from making unreliable and coerced statements during police interrogations. CWCY is the organization representing Brendan Dassey and many other youth who falsely confess. It is the ONLY organization in the world dedicated to solving the problem of juvenile false confessions.

The Frank S and Julia M Ladner Family Foundation has agreed to MATCH YWL Gala proceeds for the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth. This means that you will be donating DOUBLE the cost of your ticket to a worthy cause!!

Guests will enjoy an open bar, savoury hors d’oeuvres and delectable desserts, an opportunity to bid on silent auction items and win incredible prizes, and a complimentary swag bag filled with fabulous products and offers.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
