Civil Rights and Racial Justice

Students in the Civil Rights and Racial Justice Clinic address racial and economic justice using critical race theory as their foundation. Students provide direct legal representation in housing and employment matters, develop and conduct know-your-rights workshops, and engage in strategic policy advocacy and reform grounded in the needs of the community. In the required classroom component, CRRJC students engage in simulations, lawyering skill exercises, and self-reflection to enhance their lawyering toolbox and gain historical and social context to legal issues.
