CUNY School of Law is the premier public interest law school in the country. Our mission is to graduate outstanding public interest attorneys and to enhance the diversity of the legal profession. Our motto, “Law in the Service of Human Needs,” infuses everything we do.
Social Justice on the Cutting Edge
Thirty years ago, CUNY School of Law welcomed its first group of students to what was, and continues to be, a unique law school experience that graduates and supports outstanding public interest attorneys who serve the underprivileged and disempowered and make a difference in their communities.
This fall, we will come together to mark our three decades of advancing justice and look ahead to what remains to be done.
Through a series of public events, we will examine and discuss some of the issues at the forefront of social justice, such as national security and the environment.
We hope you will join us for some or all of these important conversations. Stay tuned for more details.
