The Health Justice Alliance Clinic is a 10 credit, one semester clinic that cuts across many health-related subject areas and lawyering skills. Students in this clinic use multiple tactics to achieve client objectives, including litigation, nontraditional advocacy, public relations, the use of media, legislative and policy drafting and advocacy, and community organizing.

The Clinic teaches students about the commitment that will sustain and energize them as advocates, the tactics that can produce success in particular cases, and the strategies that look to long-term (perhaps very long-term) success and participation in a protracted struggle for justice. By working with Georgetown health clinics that serve children and families living in poverty students also experience the benefits of collaborating with physicians, medical students, and other healthcare providers in the pursuit of health and social justice.
