Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect.
All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Classes will begin at their normal time, unless otherwise noted on the class cancellation line: 202-662-9446 or the class cancellation page. Any changes to this announcement will be communicated through the same channels by 5:00 am on Tuesday morning.
At The Community Justice Project, students serve as advocates, consultants, advisors, capacity-builders, strategic planners, policy analysts, and community organizers to help clients tackle complex, high priority projects across a wide variety of subject areas.
During the Fall 2014 semester, CJP students worked with:
- The Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia to ensure that both the opinions of public housing residents and the approaches of different jurisdictions are considered as Legal Aid advocates for revised public housing policies regarding marijuana-related eviction.
- Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities to revitalize a coalition in support of ending civil commitment by mobilizing parents of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
- Women Involved in Reentry Efforts (The W.I.R.E) to facilitate a strategic planning process for the organization. CJP students helped The W.I.R.E. to articulate its objectives, identify critical steps for the organization's growth, and develop a framework for future decision-making.
