Newark, commonly referred to as Brick City, is the third oldest city in the United States and the largest in New Jersey. Its government is small, accessible, and centralized in a historic building easily accessible via the 14th Street PATH train. In the City of Newark, Law Department Field Clinic, students immerse themselves in local governance and practice in the office of Mayor Cory Booker, the law department or the business administrator. Students help the mayor’s staff prepare for inter-governmental meetings; research, draft and provide counsel on legislation and planning issues; draft pleadings on novel challenging constitutional issues; try cases, conduct hearings, argue on the record and negotiate pleas in Municipal Court; conduct depositions; and/or second-chair civil litigation. In the seminar, students study the theory and practice of governing, managing, and practicing law in a large municipality.
