The Public Interest Law Clinic
We engage in legislative reform and strategic litigation to help our public interest clients influence the direction of public law and policy.
Our legal work focuses on matters such as:
- enhancing transparency and public engagement in governance,
- improving access to justice,
- generating democratic accountability, and
- scrutinizing the exercise of public power.
The Public Interest Law Clinic is a teaching program. Each year, a class of law students participate in the clinic under the supervision of our staff to gain theoretical and practical exposure to public interest litigation for course credit.
