The Charlotte School of Law Clinics are doing some pretty exciting things!
A standout story for the month of February involves the Civil Rights Clinic. Students who participate in the Civil Rights Clinic are often involved in local civil rights issues. Under the direction of Professor Jason Huber, who runs the Civil Rights Clinic at Charlotte School of Law, students learn how to advocate civil rights issues. Jason Huber hones students’ skills in fact investigation, pleading, motions practice, depositions, trial work, as well as other various lesser-known litigation skills. The Civil Rights Clinic encourages the individual creativity of students who are learning to advocate civil rights issues within the bounds of legal ethics.
The new Civil Rights Clinic blog is an example of the Civil Rights Clinic’s creative initiative in the arena of civil rights issues and public awareness. Law student Evan Carney has been particularly instrumental in getting the Civil Rights Clinic blog up and running. Check out the blog at www.cslcivilrights.com. This blog provides updates on the Civil Rights Clinic projects to a wide audience of interested students, faculty, and members of the public. You can also find a link to the first episode of “The Legal Dose”, an internet radio show recently launched by the Civil Rights Clinic students that addresses contemporary legal, political and social issues, on the blog website.
The Civil Rights Clinic, like all of the Charlotte School of Law’s Clinics, teaches law students valuable legal practice skills such as teamwork, creativity, research, writing, brainstorming, networking, and effective time management. The clinics at Charlotte School of Law place an emphasis on perfecting these “practice ready” skill sets.
