Learn how Pitt Law is building a healthy and resilient community

The Barco Law Library is open during regular library hours for Pitt Law faculty and students only.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not open to Pitt users outside of Pitt Law; and we are not open to the public.

Prisoner Legal Support Project

Pitt Law's Prisoner Legal Support Project is a student-led organization that advocates for prisoners' rights and criminal justice reform. We are an action-oriented group that assists incarcerated individuals with legal research, works with community organizations to mobilize for legislative change, and raises awareness about particular issues faced by the prison population. We especially focus on the struggles faced by racial minorities, religious minorities, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Our members volunteer their time to positively impact individuals who are experiencing abuse, discrimination, or other injustices.
