Free Speech Clinic
In Fall of 2018, the Liberty & Law Center will launch a Free Speech Clinic, which will provide law students with hands-on experience representing clients against infringements upon their freedom of speech. The Clinic will also be a resource for organizations, students, journalists, and citizens defending and advancing freedom of expression.
Public Interest Litigation and Advocacy
Under the leadership of distinguished Adjunct Professor Clark Neily, the Liberty and Law Center is creating a Public Interest Litigation and Advocacy concentration for law students interested in pursuing careers in public interest legal work. The program includes an externship component that will place participating law students at local public interest law firms, where they will receive hands-on training advocating for individual liberty and the public good. Launching in Fall 2018, the concentration will be available to rising GMU law students who will have at least two more years of law school as of enrollment in the program.
