Abdul Rehman Khan is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Center for Social Justice where he co-directs the Civil Litigation and Practice Clinic. He concentrates his practice in tenants’ rights and advocacy. His teaching and research interests are in the areas of legal design theory, racial and economic justice, movement lawyering and impact litigation, and the right to an adequate standard of living, with a specific focus on housing.

Professor Khan leads the Tenant Resource Project (TRP), an interdisciplinary team endeavoring to design, build, and test products that provide renters’ rights and protections using plain language online tools. In empowering people with detailed legal information that is otherwise complex and difficult to understand, TRP aims to support and empower communities in seeking housing justice. Professor Khan also teaches in the Lawyering Department on foundational skills including research, writing, and oral advocacy, as well as developing habits of ethical practice.

Prior to joining the faculty at Seton Hall Law, Abdul Rehman Khan was the inaugural Pro Bono Fellow for the City of Newark with McCarter & English. In this capacity, he leveraged the firm’s pro bono resources to represent tenants facing eviction, and he collaborated with stakeholders to influence public opinion about the critical societal aspects of eviction.

Khan is appointed to the New Jersey Supreme Court Special Civil Part Practice Committee. Additionally, he serves on the Board of Directors for Essex-Newark Legal Services, as Chair of the Legal Resources Committee for the American Muslim Bar Association, and as a member of the New Jersey State Bar Pro Bono Committee. Professor Khan also teaches in the Political Science Department at Saint Peter’s University, covering topics like comparative constitutional law, civil and human rights, postcolonial theory, and social impact. He previously served as Trustee for the South Asian Bar Association of New Jersey.

Abdul Rehman Khan is a graduate of Rutgers University and Rutgers Law School. He was previously a litigation associate with McElroy Deutsch in New York City and an appellate law clerk to Judge Ellen Koblitz in Jersey City.
