The event, in its third year, will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Harman Hall in the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo. The topic of the colloquium is “Civil Rights in the 21st Century: How to Engage Citizens.”

The event begins with a reception and exhibit display in the Rossi Main Lobby from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. followed by a two-hour colloquium. Attendance and parking to the event, which is open to the public, are free.

Garrett began her legal career in 1978 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and focused on public interest law in the areas of mental health, public school inclusivity, and poverty law. She handled family law matters as a court commissioner in San Luis Obispo starting in 2002 and, in 2005, became a judge handling criminal and juvenile cases.
