  STATEMENT OF INTENT TO PARTICIPATE  

  By completing this application form, you are agreeing, should your proposal be accepted, to participate in Northeastern University School of Law's Legal Skills in Social Context Social Justice Program. Participation in this program involves a cooperative approach between Northeastern students and your organization to move forward on the social justice problem you have presented. As such:

  • You will be asked to provide sufficient resources, within reason (in terms of time and a commitment to collaborate in providing the information needed) to enable the students to complete the project.
  • Your organization agrees to act as a "client" of a student "law office"
  • You will participate in three critical meetings, two of which are held at Northeastern University School of Law. The onsite meetings are held in early October, when you meet the team of faculty and students to discuss the early phase of the project, and at the end of March/early April, when the team delivers an oral presentation of the project's findings and recommendations. The third meeting takes place in January; it can be arranged in person or through other appropriate technology. Additional meetings are possible at your election.
  • There is no application fee for submitting this proposal, and Northeastern University School of Law will not charge your organization any fees for services rendered.
  • Should the project deliverable aid and/or result in successful policy or law changes, you agree to notify the School of Law and also acknowledge the assistance from the program to all interested parties.
