The seminar component is designed to: (1) give students a theoretical and historical context for the work they will be doing and observing, (2) teach students some of the skills and substantive law that will help them to function effectively at their fieldwork placements, and (3) address issues arising from experiences at the field placements. Students are placed at such organizations as the Lawyers Alliance for New York; Neighborhood Economic Development Assistance Project; Economic Development Division, Law Department of the City of New York; Urban Justice Center; Legal Aid Society, Community Development Unit, New York City; Center for Charter School Excellence. These organizations are quite varied. Individually, the placements provide students with wonderful opportunities for community development practice and an excellent sense of the breadth of the field
