After having completed the Social Justice Lawyering Clinic and Seminar, students will have the opportunity to engage in a more in-depth clinical experience. They will work on a project that addresses systemic issues in team-based collaboration with community-based organizations. In addition, each student will: (1) provide leadership for a team of students; (2) produce a written portfolio with at least three different forms of non-traditional legal writing; and (3) write a paper that critically examines their role working as a student lawyer within a social justice movement. Students are also expected to participate in a weekly team meeting with their faculty supervisor. There is no classroom component beyond what was taken in LAW 5034. Each semester, this course will focus on a particular social justice issue.
