The clinical programs at CUNY Law are nationally recognized as the very best in legal education. In keeping with our mission to train students for excellence in public service and public interest practice, our clinical programs are the culmination of the lawyering curriculum and a critical step in the transition from classroom to practice.
Our alumni community is our greatest achievement at the CUNY School of Law. Our more than 3,000 graduates are making a difference, practicing law in the service of human needs. Their contributions are immeasurable.

The Center for Urban Environmental Reform (CUER) is a Social Justice Initiative of the City University of New York School of Law. CUER was founded on the belief that environmental justice is a critical aspect of social justice and that communities are entitled to participate fully and meaningfully in environmental decisions that affect them. CUER will be a clearinghouse and focal point for the data, experts, and training needed to ensure a level playing field. The goal is to expand participation in public decision-making and to increase transparency and overall access to information in order to enhance both the legitimacy of environmental decision-making processes and the fairness of decisions reached. cuer.law.cuny.edu
