“These background laws — which have not been blocked by any court and are not at issue in the unfolding litigation — mean that guns are effectively banned at many of Michigan’s polling places.” #Election2020

This clinic focuses on maintaining U.S. rule of law and human rights commitments in four areas: national security (e.g., torture, drones, Guantanamo); antidiscrimination (especially against religious and ethnic groups); climate change (maintaining U.S. commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement); and democracy promotion (voting rights, redistricting). Projects include litigation, policy advocacy, and strategic planning matters.
