About the QU Civil Justice Clinic

The Civil Justice Clinic represents low-income clients through a combination of direct legal services and policy advocacy in a range of areas, including transgender civil rights, disability rights, criminal justice reform, prisoner reentry, immigration law, employment law, family law, and death penalty abolition.

About the Legislation Clinic at UDC Law

Through a combination of client representation, seminar instruction, and the study of legislative lawyering, the Legislation Clinic teaches UDC Law students how to effectively operate at the intersection of text, law, policy, and politics. Students undertake guided legislative lawyering representation on systemic reform, statutory interpretation, and other policy projects that advance the public interest and work to lift vulnerable populations out of poverty by improving gender equity, workplace equality, and access to other civil rights.
