2018 Pipeline to Justice Pre Law Summer Program

2018 Pipeline to Justice Pre Law Summer Program

The CUNY School of Law Pipeline to Justice Program is thrilled to announce our second annual Pipeline to Justice Undergraduate Summer Program. From June 11th to June 21st, students from various CUNY campuses will take part in a dynamic initiative at the CUNY School of Law designed to introduce prospective advocates to legal education and the world of public interest lawyering.

Program Overview
Developed by the award winning Pipeline to Justice Program, this free two-week session will consist of daily seminars focused on different aspects of the legal field including, but not limited to: analytical writing, oral advocacy, community building and professional skill building. In addition, all program participants will be given metro cards to cover transportation costs during the program and a $450.00 stipend upon successful completion.

Consistent with CUNY Law’s mission to expand access to justice and educate lawyers in the service of human needs, our goal is to provide students with a broad introduction to the study and practice of law and inspire the next generation of social justice attorneys. Housed at the nation’s premier public interest law school, the Pipeline to Justice Summer Program is the ideal place for a student to embark upon his or her career as an advocate for social change.
