Welcome to the Law and Policy in Action Website

Our specialty clinic offering provides law students the opportunity to partner with grassroots organizations, non-profits, businesses and public officials to solve recurring and systemic problems that cannot be adequately addressed through litigation or traditional legal methods. Law Policy and Action is an award-winning clinic program that furnishes representation, research, technical assistance and advice, legislative advocacy, workshops, awareness training and other community-based services and initiatives.

We invite you to learn more about our mission, priorities and specific projects, which are arranged by topic. Please tour the site by clicking on the bold text or the project listed in the main menu bar.
