New York University School of Law has labs that bring together faculty, students, and advocates to advance justice, challenge inequality, and transform systems:
The Law and Organizing Lab provides capacity to NYU Law’s Clinical Program to engage in power-building, coalitional, and campaigning work. The Law and Organizing Lab works in support of building power for traditionally marginalized communities, and preparing our students to provide client representation that is grounded in a deep understanding of how their advocacy work relates to and supports broader movements to advance structural change.
The Community Equity Lab is committed to helping build a community-centered vision of justice, and the tools necessary to achieve it. Advancing community equity requires that we reimagine how we use the law to strengthen communities of color and allow the people who live in those communities to lead choice-filled lives. The goal of the Community Equity Lab is to create vital and dynamic communities of opportunity where all people can thrive.
