  • Authoring policy briefs and white papers
  • Participating in legislative advocacy
  • Meeting regularly with community members, organizers, and legal advocates

The focus area for the Social Justice Lawyering Clinic may change from year to year based on community needs. The current clinic is focused on promoting low-wage worker rights and advancing opportunities for low-income immigrants.
