The inaugural Move for Justice is aimed at 4 primary goals: (1) to build awareness of the need for providing legal services to low-income and elderly populations, (2) to create another unifying event for the law school, legal community, and our friends and allies, (3) t o raise funds for Legal Services of North Dakota (LSND), and (4) to create a law school running event.
This year's Move for Justice will take place with the Fargo Marathon events that are scheduled for May 19th and 20th. Those events are:
