The new dean at New York Law School, Anthony Crowell, comes with plenty of hot connections. He intends to use them to expand the school’s clinical offerings, launching 13 new clinics partnering with local nonprofit organizations. Crowell has been posted in the New York City government in various areas from 1997 to 2012, recently as counsel to Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He is using his ties to help satisfy the unique requirements of the NY Bar, which requires 50-hours of pro bono work.

“As New York’s law school, it’s only natural that we embrace the city as our classroom and grow the number of uniquely New York experiential learning opportunities for our students,” said Crowell, as reported by The National Law Journal.

“When I started [here] last summer, I made a commitment to work with our faculty on a historic expansion of our clinical and experiential programs,” he said.

What that amounts to is more opportunities for NY Law students to get real world experience, as they use their 3L the way med students use a “clinical year,” – to get some hand’s on experience and make connections that might equate to jobs waiting for them once they pass the bar. The program will have them spending 10-week sequences working with city lawmakers, working with civil litigation through Legal Aid Society, and helping in administrative law through the city’s health department. Working with 26 clinics – quite an expansion – will also decrease the costs the school would have to pay for internal programs.
