Harrison Institute for Public Law
- Policy Clinic

Capitol moon 2

The Harrison Institute supports actors who shape and make public policy. Some of our clients are nonprofit coalitions that promote policy change at various levels – local, state, federal, and international. Others are decision-makers, primarily at the state level – legislators, attorneys general, regulatory agencies, and their national associations.

Policy teams.  Students in the public policy clinic analyze law-making authority, identify options for changing policy, help clients plan their strategy, and draft documents based on client choices.  Students work in four teams: 

  • Climate team
    • Adaptation – Enable cities to prepare for hotter summers, higher seas, and heavier downpours.
    • Equity – Empower low-income communities in urban and rural areas to protect their homes and neighborhoods from climate impacts.
  • Health and food team
    • Health Justice Alliance – Develop District of Columbia-based advocacy projects for Georgetown University’s Health Justice Alliance. 
    • Health disparities – Meet urgent oral health needs of low-income children. 
    • School food – Reinvent a healthier food chain for school children.
  • Human rights team – 
    • Procurement – Help governments and institutions respect human rights in their own procurement.
    • Transparency – Make transparency happen in global supply chains for apparel and other sectors.
  • Trade and environment team – 
    • Sustainable fisheries - Develop strategies for transparency and human rights in seafood supply chains.
    • Carbon pricing – Promote state collaboration with international carbon pricing programs.
