We are alumni of the City University of New York School of Law, Class (“CUNY Law”) of 2007 and founders of Common Law, an organization that uses legal education and legal services to support and increase organizing and activism. We describe the origins of Common Law and our beginnings as an organization providing direct legal services to members of community organizing groups in Section I; the emergence of our unique legal clinic model supporting pro se (self-represented) litigants fighting foreclosure in Section II; and our challenges and hopes for the future in Section III.
