this is a article about the Electoral Law Clinic launching this summer at Harvard Law School, as well Answers with the Director, Ruth Greenwood. This is a very interesting development that will complement HLS services in the electoral law area.
Harvard Law School today announced the launch of the new Election Law Clinic. With the aim of providing law students with first-hand experience in litigation, law, administration and policy making, the new clinic will offer students the opportunity to work on a variety of cutting-edge issues in areas like redistribution, voting rights, campaign finance, and party regulation.
While many of today’s top law schools offer electoral law courses, Harvard is the first law school in the country to launch an in-house clinic designed entirely around the practice of electoral law. The Election Law Clinic joins 46 legal clinics and organizes student practice that make up the school’s clinical program.
Ruth Greenwood, who joined HLS in January 2020 as a law instructor and founded a Clinic specializing in the Advocacy and Litigation, will direct the Internal Voting Law Clinic to expand.
