New York University School of Law will begin a Supreme Court Litigation Clinic in fall 2007, joining schools such as Harvard Law School, Yale Law School, University of Virginia School of Law, Northwestern University School of Law and University of Texas School of Law, which all developed similar clinics in recent years. NYU’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic will allow students to work with faculty and experienced Supreme Court litigators to obtain Supreme Court review, write briefs in merits cases and moot court other lawyers who are preparing their Supreme Court arguments. The Clinic will provide pro bono representation of prisoners in appeals and civil action seeking affirmative relief. Representation will also cover prisoners bringing other claims against federal, state and local governments. The New York Court of Appeals will also provided counsel assignments to the students. The students will not be able to argue before the Court, but will learn to draft petitions for certiorari and oppositions, merits briefs and amicus briefs. The law clinic will be run by Samuel Estreicher, NYU’s Dwight D. Opperman Professor of Law. He is also director of the university’s Center for Labor and Employment and co-director of its Dwight D. Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration.
