Justice & Equity For All

We are dedicated to helping individuals and communities at the margins of society reach greater levels of self-sufficiency.

Pro Bono Clinics

Black & Latino
Immigration Clinic

Founded in 2015, the Clinic serves as a support network meant to increase attorney awareness, knowledge and engagement on pro bono immigration matters, and to inspire more attorneys to take on pro bono immigration matters and feel less daunted by the process.

LBGT Network
Name Change Clinic

Established to provide free legal name change services to low-income transgender people seeking to have their legal identities match their lived experience. Clients who receive assistance from the Clinic are referred by Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund.

WLI Housing Clinic

Attorneys who participate in the WLI Housing Clinic are focused on helping low-income tenants in New York public housing remain in and/or repair their homes. The outcomes in these cases, referred by The Legal Aid Society, Legal Services NYC and New York Legal Assistance Group, can make a life-changing difference for the financially-challenged clients we represent and their families, particularly when affordable housing in New York City is in such short supply.

Civil Rights

Cadwalader’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion’s Civil Rights Series is a unique program that consists of events that highlight civil rights issues featuring notable individuals and organizations at the forefront of today’s civil rights movement.
