The Center for Public Interest Advocacy and Collaboration (CPIAC) takes the lead in infusing the law school’s public interest mission into all facets of the student experience. While supporting every aspect of the law school’s commitment to social justice, the center is also launching a variety of programs and initiatives that address broader justice issues in the community, nation and world. The center’s most recent initiative is NUSL Student Volunteers for Justice, which provides law students with volunteer opportunities to help defeat many of the recent federal executive orders and proposed changes in federal law intent on cutting back individual rights and freedoms. Students are providing pro bono legal research and assistance to organizations such as the ACLU’s Political Asylum Immigration Representation Project, Greater Boston Legal Services, GLAD, the National Lawyers Guild and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice. The center is also taking the lead in planning is the law school’s 50th anniversary celebration, which will include conversations and events aimed at reimagining the nature of public interest law in the 21st century.
