In the fall 2014 semester, students in the Law Reform Advocacy Clinic will be preparing for trial in a large affirmative warranty of habitability case on behalf of nine clients in Nassau County Supreme Court. Depending on the court’s calendar, this case will likely go to trial in fall semester.
Students also will be preparing and conducting depositions in a civil rights case against the NYPD in Manhattan federal court.
In both of these cases, students will be responsible for handling all aspects of the litigation:
arguing motions in court,
appearing at pretrial conferences,
making trial arguments, and
conducting the depositions.
Because both of these cases are very demanding, this Clinic requires a large time commitment.
