Clinic Projects

The Gender Justice Clinic provides legal services to victims of gender-based violence and discrimination, as well as to organizations working on related issues.  Under faculty supervision, student attorneys have provided legal advice and representation to individuals, litigated cases before international human rights bodies, drafted legislation and legal guides, participated in community education initiatives, and engaged in other forms of advocacy designed to advance gender justice. Below are some examples of recent Gender Justice Clinic projects.
