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.
The 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 Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic is currently accepting applications for a summer law clerk. Applications will be accepted through March 19, 2021. For more information, please see the Position Announcement.
Acknowledging the urgency of both health and racial justice in this moment, Professors Sheila Foster, Yael Cannon, and M. Gregg Bloche set forth in Health Affairs a legal agenda to fight the health effects of racism in housing, policing, the environment, and other areas.
