Legal Clinic

Two practices converge in the legal clinics: instruction in professional attorneys’ practices and concrete legal actions. The clinics prioritize student participation in all instances in which they can be incorporated. Coordinated by legal professionals, students join work on cases that CELS is litigating, participate in discussions regarding how to approach problems of public interest through litigation, and respond to legal consultations and complaints that reach our organization.
