The New Jersey State Bar Foundation awarded more than $4 million in multi-year grants to fund new and existing law school clinics at Rutgers Law School in both Camden and Newark.

In keeping with the foundation’s mission of advancing the profession of law through public service, more than $6.4 million in new funding provided will support 14 clinics at Rutgers and Seton Hall law schools in New Jersey.

“Clinics give law students practical experience in providing legal aid in the areas of public service, social justice, gender justice, family law, mediation, entrepreneurship and more,” said Charlie Stoia, president of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation. “We are thrilled to provide funding to help prepare students for the practice of law.”
