LAW 920TUT Community Justice Clinic

Tutorial

The Community Justice Clinic represents low-income residents of Buffalo on issues relating to workers' rights, consumer justice, immigration, civil rights and government benefits. It is primarily a litigation clinic, although students will also have the opportunity to engage in community education and policy work as well. The clinic strives to be responsive to the needs of low-income communities and supportive of grassroots organizing movements. The clinic may also represent community organizations on campaigns or litigation related to the clinic's issues areas. Litigation includes a mix of individual representation and "impact" litigation. Students will work in teams and will be responsible for all aspects of their cases, including interviewing clients, drafting complaints, engaging in discovery, taking depositions, drafting briefs, and arguing in court. The clinic is a four-credit, semester-long course. Students are strongly encouraged, though not required, to stay in the clinic more than one semester. Advanced students have the option of taking the clinic for a variable number of credits.
