2007 Herb Block Foundation Grantees

Howard University School of Law (HUSL) is pleased to announce that the Clinical Law Center has been granted $25,000 from The Herb Block Foundation. This funding will be utilized to further enhance education and outreach within the Center.

The Clinical Law Center provides an exceptional and innovative course of training that teaches law students the skills necessary for the effective practice of law. Composed of four in-house clinical courses — Criminal Justice, Alternate Dispute Resolution, Civil Rights and Fair Housing — and two external programs (the DC Law Students in Court consortium program and an Externship program), the primary goal of the CLC revolves around providing high quality legal assistance to the under-served and under-represented communities of the greater metropolitan District of Columbia area.

Through The Herb Block Foundation’s generous support, the CLC will have the ability to further integrate, coordinate and expand its activities in reaching out to the community through education and outreach projects designed to build upon the civil rights history of HUSL.
