Welcome to the CLSR!

It starts in the classroom. New England Law professors teach more than seventy courses on public interest-oriented topics such as American Indian Law, Sexual Orientation and the Law, Global Warming Law and Policy, and Mental Health Issues in the Criminal Process. In tandem with the academic curriculum, the CLSR has five or six faculty members at any given time who engage students in actual public service legal work. This enables students to participate in real-world projects as a part of their coursework, thus bridging the gap between what is discussed in the classroom and how the law works in the real world.

This linking of theory and practice means that the study and work of CLSR students and faculty can have far-reaching effects. The descriptions of current projects below give a sense of the CLSR’s impact.
