Student Work

Student Work

The Voting Rights Litigation and Advocacy Clinic focuses on voter suppression and redistricting law and policy, but students may choose a placement that includes work in other areas of election law including election administration, campaign finance, political party regulation, and ethics. The work may be at the local, state, and/or national level, and could focus on the needs of a particular community or a broader audience. Students in the Voting Rights Litigation and Advocacy Clinic will have placements at externships with non-profit litigation and advocacy groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Campaign Legal Center, and Common Cause.

Students who enroll in this clinic will be contacted by the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs to begin the placement process of matching students with externship programs. Most clinical work will be done remotely, although there may be opportunities to travel for those working for organizations based in New York or Washington, D.C.
