The Community Legal Resource Network

The Community Legal Resource Network, (CLRN) provides innovative support for CUNY Law graduates in having fulfilling, social justice careers from law school through retirement.


The Community Legal Resource Network (CLRN) supports CUNY Law students and graduates from the day they start law school and throughout their careers.

We have expanded our program from its initial focus on nurturing solo community practices to now providing dynamic professional development opportunities for graduates at different stages of their careers. From initial skills building to mid-career changes to systemic analysis for more seasoned practitioners, CLRN’s innovative programs help CUNY Law graduates to have fulfilling social justice careers from law school through retirement. 

 Our redesigned program focuses on four principle areas: Ongoing training and development; Low Bono Access to Justice; Advancing the Practice of Law; and Quality of Career.
