The Employment Law Clinic focuses on rights in the workplace, with a particular emphasis on state and federal laws that prohibit discrimination, harassment, and retaliation based on race, sex, disability, and other protected characteristics. Work may also address issues such as unemployment benefits, wage and hour claims, severance negotiations, union issues, workplace safety, and more. Externships include placements with nonprofit and governmental organizations such as:

  • U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission
  • Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination
  • The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights
  • Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders
  • Greater Boston Legal Services
