Community Justice Clinic

The Community Justice Clinic (CJC) represents low-income residents and communities in Buffalo on litigation as well as policy and community education projects.

The clinic takes on both individual cases and “impact” litigation designed to bring about a change in the law. Its policy and community education projects are undertaken on behalf of community organizations and coalitions.
