We promote the public interest in the EU
Through lobbying, advocacy, and legal research the EU Clinic promotes democratic, transparent and accountable EU institutions and agencies.
In a nutshell…
The EU Clinic is the result of a partnership between New York University School of Law and HEC Paris (Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales de Paris).
Clinic instructors and selected students from both universities work together with leading NGOs, academics and practitioners. Together we lobby the EU to promote the underrepresented public interest (public health, environmental protection, consumer rights and more).
The core philosophy of the Clinic can be stated simply: in the context of an increasingly powerful and increasingly important supranational European Union, we believe in the fundamental importance of an active and engaged citizenry to represent the public interest and hold the EU institutions to account. In particular, EU law and the legal profession, by providing assistance to citizens both in their relations with the state and the market, bear a particular responsibility to make this vision a reality.
