Pitt Law is dedicated to engaging, serving, and partnering with local, national, and global communities. Here are some of our outreach programs:
JURIST has been the world’s only law school-based news service for more than 20 years.
A talented team of law students and professional staffers led by founder and Editor-in-Chief Professor Bernard Hibbitts goes online every day to document legal change and expand public access to primary sources and expert analysis. We believe that a broader understanding of law promotes engagement, deepens debate, and forges stronger and more inclusive democracies.
Health Law Clinic
The Health Law Clinic is a medical-legal partnership between the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
Medical-legal partnerships increase access to justice by situating legal advocates in the health care setting. The Health Law Clinic at UPMC-Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, is staffed by second and third-year Pitt Law students. These certified legal interns provide families with brief advice and direct representation in order to address and prevent health-harming legal needs. The Clinic expands the capacity of this world-class care facility to respond to the social determinants of health affecting young patients and their families.
