Rutgers School of Law Constitutional Litigation Clinic

About Rutgers School of Law Constitutional Litigation Clinic

About this Organization:
Since its founding in 1970, the Constitutional Litigation Clinic has worked on cutting-edge constitutional reform. Through the clinic, students not only learn the law, they make the law. Constitutional Litigation Clinic students have litigated a remarkable array of landmark civil rights and international human rights cases. The clinic's extensive docket has included the nation's first suits against police surveillance of political activists; a successful challenge before the U.S. Supreme Court of Congress' authority to refuse to seat a duly elected member; a successful defense of the right of non-profit advocates to distribute leaflets to voter door-to-door and in shopping malls; lawsuits to implement affirmative action programs and to enforce affordable housing laws; protection of immigrants' rights; protection of the rights of alternative political parties; a successful challenge to municipal ordinances barring use of public parks run by non-residents; and suits against the state police for unreasonable searches of motorists on New Jersey's highway.
