Career Exploration Workshop: Mitigation in social work
April 30, 2021 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Join us in speaking with mitigation specialists Elizabeth Aguirre and Ariane Eigler, working within the justice system to advocate for mitigating criminal sentences. Working for the Federal Public Defender Office Capital Habeas Unit (CHU), Elizabeth gathers information about the lives of criminal defendants at risk of receiving the death penalty, formulating evidence about the defendant’s life to encourage a lesser punishment. Ariane does the same for non-capital punishments, and she can share her experiences from that perspective. This can be very rewarding and fulfilling work, and an excellent way to put your degree to work in the justice system.
