The Civil Rights Litigation Clinic allows teams of students to work on civil rights cases in cooperation with public interest organizations and private attorneys.  Students spend significant time out of class working on their assigned cases, with in-class time spent honing skills involved in litigation. For the 2012-2013 academic year, students will team up with ACLU of Southern California.
