PowerPoint created by the Albany Law School Community Development Clinic
The Albany Law School Community Development Clinic, founded in 2016, is a legal resource for grassroots groups of long-time residents in low-income neighborhoods, as well as new immigrants, that don’t have access to pro bono legal services but need representation in forming a new not-for-profit, or small business, or assistance advocating for economic development in a particular neighborhood. Students, under the supervision of a professor or practicing attorney, learn key corporate law and deal closing skills, including client counseling and interviewing, negotiation, drafting, advocacy, and public speaking. Students learn the importance of pro bono and professional responsibility by servicing vulnerable populations such as domestic violence victims, and the formerly incarcerated.
