This spring, the Law, Societies & Justice Department partnered with the Philanthropy Lab foundation to teach LSJ 490A: Social Justice through Philanthropy. Through the Philanthropy Lab’s generous grant of $50,000, students in the class learned about global giving, solicited and evaluated proposals and ultimately allocated grants to Seattle-based international non-governmental organizations engaged in international human rights, development and poverty alleviation, and humanitarian assistance activities in other countries.
