Prof. Michael Haber Presents on Advocacy Coalitions and Clinical Pedagogy at Southern Clinical Conference

Michael Haber, Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Attorney-in-Charge, Community and Economic Development Clinic

Professor Michael Haber gave the presentation “The Pedagogy of Coalition Work in a Transactional Clinic” at the Southern Clinical Conference at the Charlotte School of Law on Oct. 15, 2016.

In his presentation, Professor Haber argued that “coalition work” has become a leading approach for organizations advancing policy change at the state and local levels.

He described four different ways that students in Hofstra Law’s Community and Economic Development Clinic participate in advocacy coalitions, and discussed transferable transactional-lawyering skills that students can develop through work on such projects.
