Health Justice Alliance
The Health Justice Alliance Clinic
The Health Justice Alliance is a clinic at Georgetown University Law Center where students are integrated directly into Georgetown healthcare clinics to help D.C. families and children address the legal barriers that negatively impact their health and well-being. Clinic students also act as advocates for community, non-profit, educational, faith-based and other organizations and groups engaged in work designed to further social and health justice. The Clinic is a key part of the broader Georgetown University Health Justice Alliance, which includes a range of inter-professional education, service, and research initiatives.
Health Justice Alliance seeks to:
– Provide students with an appreciation for the complexity of working for health and social justice, an understanding of the variety of skills and strategies that lawyers can use to seek justice, and the faith that students have the capacity to make a difference as a lawyer.
The Community Justice Project
The Community Justice Project has a long and rich tradition of offering students the opportunity to 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 2017-18 academic year, the Community Justice Project collaborated with the Health Justice Alliance as part of a new medical-legal partnership between the Law Center and Georgetown University Medical Center.
