CUNY: Community & Economic Development
The Community & Economic Development (CED) Clinic serves community-based organizational clients—such as nonprofit organizations, worker-owned cooperatives, and tenant associations—that are creating viable neighborhood institutions and organizing for social and economic justice. Students and faculty in the clinic work with both start-ups and more established organizations and provide strategic legal services to tenant associations in support of their ongoing organizing campaigns. Students build on their skills by assisting start-up organizations with incorporation and/or obtaining tax-exempt status, as well as negotiating and drafting contracts, and counseling organizational clients on employment and governance issues.
Helping communities move forward through strategic organizational and legal efforts.
