Inside BU Law’s Housing, Employment, Family and Disability Clinic

 

Law students who participate in the Civil Litigation Program’s Housing, Employment, Family and Disability Clinic work for credit under the supervision of four full-time BU clinical faculty.  They can represent anyone from tenants in eviction defenses in housing court, to parties in divorces in probate court.  Host David Yas, a BU Law alum, former publisher of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and a V.P. at Bernstein Global Wealth, sits down with Professor Robert G. Burdick, director of the Civil Law Clinical Program, to talk about how the clinic works, and the real life training that students gain by participating in this clinic.
