Center for Social Justice Initiatives

The Center for Social Justice (CSJ) and New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) released a report, Discharge, Deportation, and Dangerous Journeys: A Study on the Practice of Medical Repatriation, documenting an alarming number of cases in which U.S. hospitals have forcibly repatriated vulnerable undocumented patients, who are ineligible for public insurance as a result of their immigration status, in an effort to cut costs.

We continue to accept applications and will consider you for a position if there are openings in the clinics.


Through the Center for Social Justice (CSJ) clinical program, students move from the classroom to the real-world as they gain hands-on experience representing clients and handling cases from start to finish. Each of the clinics focuses on a particular area of the law, but all share the commitment of promoting social justice by working on behalf of the underrepresented. CSJ graduates regularly recall their clinical experiences as the most fulfilling and memorable of their law school careers.
