LPE NYC aims to break down barriers by building a citywide network of students, professors, lawyers, organizers, and anyone else fighting for a better future.
New York City is the perfect place for the first metropolitan LPE effort. Law has shaped a city of extreme inequality rooted in hierarchies of race, class, gender, and identity, but these circumstances have also created a vibrant community of organizing, activism, and resistance to the status quo.
We invite all like-minded New Yorkers to help us shape LPE NYC! We have a few initiatives in mind thus far:
- “LPE in Practice” programming connecting students to lawyers and organizations
- Practitioner-focused events certified as CLEs
- Reading groups
- Working groups
- Organizing campaigns
We welcome additional ideas!
If you would like to participate in LPE NYC, please complete our 5-minute questionnaire.
We are also hosting an LPE NYC Junior Scholars Workshop. Each month, one participant will facilitate a discussion of a work-in-progress or short readings on a selected topic. The dates and times for Fall 2023 are TBD. If you’re interested in the workshop, please register here.
