Cornell Center for Women and Justice

Clinical Projects

The Center faculty, staff and students work with judges, legal professionals, governmental and nongovernmental organizations and key stakeholders on selected in-depth projects that work toward improving access to justice, economic opportunity and social progress for women and girls. A project may involve conducting fact-finding and writing a report, evaluating laws related to access to justice for victims of gender-based violence, or developing training materials. Projects typically begin in January or August and are undertaken by teams of law students supervised by Cornell Law School faculty.
