The Symbiosis Law School, in Pune, India, has announced plans to begin, in cooperation with CUNY Law, an incubator to help new lawyers begin their own practices, especially in underserved areas. In 2007, CUNY Law’s Community Legal Resource Network (CLRN) began its Incubator for Justice program, which helps recent graduates establish solo practices.
Fred Rooney, director of CLRN, along with New York Judge Fern Fisher recently visited the Symbiosis Law School and discussed issues related to accessing justice in the United States. “Ability to get justice and economic conditions are very closely linked. But justice has to be delivered nevertheless. So we are trying various methods like roping in NGOs and advocacy groups to help the litigants get legal representation,” Rooney said.
