We invite rising second- and third-year law students from New York City law schools to apply to The Action Lab (TAL), the Law and Political Economy (LPE) Project and the Initiative for Community Power’s first ever Summer Academy on Law, Organizing, and Power Building.
The Summer Academy will introduce a small cohort of law students to critical LPE and organizing frameworks, with a focus on housing justice and decarceration.
The Summer Academy will be held at TAL’s retreat center in Ossining, NY from Tuesday, August 16th through lunchtime Thursday, August 18. Meals and lodging will be provided; and shuttle service will be provided from Ossining station (Metro North line) to The Action Lab. Train tickets from NYC will be reimbursed. Following the Summer Academy, TAL and the LPE Project will facilitate ongoing relationship-building, learning, and collaborative opportunities for the cohort of participants through a series of follow-up meetings and events.
