The Arthur Liman Public Interest Program supports the work of Yale law students and Yale law school graduates through Liman Fellowships as well as undergraduate and graduate students from Yale College, Barnard College, Brown University, Harvard University, Princeton University, Spelman College, and Stanford University, all of whom work to respond to problems of inequality and to improve access to justice.

The Liman Project provides an opportunity for Yale Law students to work together with faculty on research and advocacy around specific issues related to detention and access to justice. Students may also participate in the Liman Public Interest Workshop, which meets weekly in the spring to discuss emerging issues of theory and advocacy.

Public Interest Law Colloquium


Every year, the Program organizes the Public Interest Law Colloquium, which brings together advocates, scholars, and students from across the country for a discussion. The Twentieth Anniversary Liman Colloquium, Public Interest(s), will take place on April 6-7, 2017.
