Advisory Council

The Advisory Council of the Impact Center for Public Interest Law is comprised of leading public interest law practitioners and public officials who support and help guide the work of the Impact Center and who, in turn, draw upon the resources and expertise of the Impact Center to further their work. Advisory Council members come from a wide range of nonprofit public interest organizations, public sector and private practice settings; a number of the members are alumni of New York Law School. The members work with the Impact Center in a variety of capacities – including collaborative advocacy, experiential learning and pro bono opportunities for students, continuing legal education, and conferences and other events.
