The Community Justice section teaches law students substantive, procedural and practical advocacy skills in order to assist community members with postdisaster housing and government accountability issues. Particular emphasis is placed on social justice issues in the context of community revitalization and the unique opportunities the New Orleans rebuilding presents. The students investigate and analyze law and facts in individual and group contexts. Students research substantive law, draft pleadings, participate in community education and outreach, and advocate informally, administratively, and through carefully targeted state and federal litigation. They are expected to master advanced Lawyering skills and to learn how lawyers can play a vital role in broad community efforts.
