Public Interest Law Clinic

The Public Interest Law Clinic provides a research and advocacy opportunity for third- and fourth-year students who have completed the Center for Public Interest Law's (CPIL) Public Interest Law and Practice course. Under the guidance of CPIL faculty, students may choose an individual research or advocacy project for completion in one or two semesters.

Projects focus on regulatory or public interest law topics and, in the past, have included:

  • scholarly critiques of regulatory agency performance;
  • the drafting of petitions for rulemaking or state legislation, with supporting legal memoranda; and
  • the drafting of amicus curiae briefs for submission in appellate court litigation.
