Institutes and Programs
Our Feinstein Center for Pro Bono & Experiential Education was recognized by National Jurist magazine as one of the two strongest public interest law programs in the Northeast, while our Marine Affairs Institute is one of only a few programs in the country offering a concentration in this increasingly vital field of law. Meanwhile our excellent clinical programs offer unparalleled opportunities to move from theory to practice, helping actual clients solve their legal dilemmas.
