HGD welcomed 21 pre-law students from UChicago for lunch during their week long civil rights tour of Montgomery and Birmingham. The visit was organized by Claudia Macias-Retson, Senior Assistant Director of UChicago Careers in Law, and HGD’s Honza Prchal, a UChicago Alumnus. Tim Davis, Managing partner, welcomed the group and discussed the practice of Intellectual Property law. Erik Heninger and Bill Bross also spoke with the group about different types of law and fielded questions about how civil rights issues affect the day to day practice.
The UChicago students visited the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and Birmingham’s historic Kelly Ingram Park among other sites during their visit. The University of Chicago is an urban research university that has driven new ways of thinking since 1890.
