2024 Haywood Burns Contemplative Social Justice Law Retreat

March 22 - March 24

About the Retreat

For more than 20 years, a community of staff, students, faculty, and alumni have gathered at this annual treat to sit with the weight of social justice lawyering.

Taking a moment to pause and center yourself is vital for all of us, especially for those engaged in the study and practice of social justice law. This year’s retreat takes place on March 22-March 24, 2024 and will be held at the Blue Cliff Monastery in Pine Bush, New York.

For those of you who have attended, you know how valuable this 3-day break is to recalibrate and refocus in community. We want to share this reflective practice and remove financial obstacles for students who’d like to join. In the past, the generosity of the alumni community has meant that student fees have been fully covered!  We are hoping to do this again for the 2024 Spring Retreat.

Please consider making a contribution to cover student costs.


Capacity is limited, so please ensure you can attend if you register for this event.

Students can register here, at no cost.
