The Legal Skills in Social Context (LSSC) Social Justice Program is part of the School of Law’s commitment to experiential learning and community partnerships. Students in the program use their analytical research and writing skills to address social justice challenges identified by a wide range of community organizations and agencies. The program can benefit your organization by pursuing aspects of your social justice agenda that you might otherwise forgo due to staffing or resource constraints.

If your proposal is selected for immediate entry into the LSSC program, it will be closely supervised by faculty members with specialized knowledge in the subject area. You benefit from the energy and acumen of upper-level law student lawyering fellows and 12 to 14 first-year law students. Above all, you will contribute to the legal education of future lawyers by participating in this effort and by introducing the students to the grit and spirit of social justice lawyering.
