Regulatory Advocacy Clinic
Students in the Regulatory Advocacy Clinic work with organizations in their efforts to engage in regulatory advocacy regarding education, economic justice, housing, and consumer issues of public import. These efforts include drafting memos analyzing relevant factual, legal, and policy issues; drafting and submitting letters to administrative agencies; and participating in formal notice and comment rule-making procedures. The weekly seminar sessions cover the basics of administrative law, drafting, and the projects being worked on. Students also have opportunities to work with other clinics at NYLS that are engaged in legislative advocacy.
The clinic is comprised of a once-weekly seminar and fieldwork experience. Students are expected to regularly devote 12–16 hours per week to clinic work.
