Workplace Justice, Global Workers, Practical Lawyering: The Transnational Worker Rights Clinic
The Clinic is based at the Equal Justice Center, a public interest employment justice and immigrant rights law firm. Clinic students work as lead counsel representing transnational migrant workers in litigation to recover unpaid wages; they participate in adapting U.S. law to the evolving reality of a global workforce, and they learn to advance social justice through community-based lawyering. As they help low-income workers recover unpaid wages, students in the Transnational Worker Rights Clinic acquire practical skills, examine headline-making policy issues, and address some of the law’s most fundamental questions.
