On September 19, the Center for Global Justice welcomed guest speakers Julie and Allen Anjo, General Counsel for YMAM.  The Anjos have close connections with Regent Law: Julie worked in the Regent Law Admissions department and Allen is a Regent Law and Government grad (’13), and the Anjos often host Center for Global Justice summer interns.

The Anjos spoke to the group on their mission of bringing justice for the least of these and how they live it out day-to-day through the General Counsel’s office at the University of the Nations Kona (UNK) (a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Kona).

Julie spoke of how she was drawn to law school after seeing problems that she could not fix as a layperson. As General Counsel for a non-profit missionary organization, they are making a huge difference by keeping the organization compliant with legal standards and policies, among other things.

Center for Global Justice intern Moriah Schmidt was especially excited to welcome the Anjos. Moriah interned for the Anjos this summer at the UNK General Counsel’s office, in Kona, Hawaii. “I can’t tell you just how encouraging it is to hear that the work we are doing in law school really does matter,” said Moriah. “It’s so easy to lose sight of that while drowning in 1L Contracts and Property law, or sinking in the work that piles on during 2L and 3L year. Some of us (like myself) were drawn to law to help those who are needy, the oppressed, the poor, but find it much harder to visualize how we are going to act on it.”
