Pitt McGehee Hosts Sold Out Morris Dees Lecture

A standing-room-only crowd of more than 300 came to hear civil rights icon Morris Dees speak Monday, April 13, at Wayne State University Law School. Dees, who is widely celebrated for his work with the Southern Poverty Law Center, which he co-founded, presented "With Justice for All in a Changing America." The evening lecture was the third installment of the annual Dean A. Robb Public Interest Lecture Series, which is presented by Wayne Law's Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights. Dees also gave a luncheon presentation for law students. The lecture series honors Robb, Wayne Law class of 1949, a noted civil rights attorney and social activist. It is intended to inspire law students, attorneys, public-interest groups and everyday citizens to become more active in public service and public-interest law. The series is made possible by the Royal Oak law firm of Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers PC and supported by the Public Justice Foundation. Michael Pitt, Wayne Law class of 1974, is managing partner of the firm. You can read the entire story here.
