Rutgers Law Clinics Celebrate 50 Years

Born out of the Newark Rebellion, Rutgers Legal Clinical program es established in 1970 as part of a "Strategy for Change" which proposed that the law school provide "a legal education for those who would practice law on behalf of the traditional interests of society and those who would become 'a new breed of lawyers with deep roots in teh honored past of our profession who (we) would characterize as people's lawyers."

Half a century later, Rutgers Law has 18 active clinics to serve the larger community in areas that include child advocacy, constitutional rights, education and health law, immmigrant rights, and international human rights. Join us on October 2, 2020 when we celebrate our legacy and look to the future of clinic with alumni, guest speakers, students, and clinical scholars from across the nation.
