University of Miami (UM) School of Law is teaching future lawyers how to advocate for social justice, amongst other left-wing causes.
One course, Social Justice Lawyering, “explores the role of lawyers in work for social change.” According to its online course description, students learn of the histories of social justice lawyering while also examining modern day causes.
A more specific course, Immigration Law, covers “foundations of the immigration power” and “substantive provisions and procedures governing admission and exclusion” as well as “refugees and political asylum; judicial review; and the evolving meaning and value of citizenship.” It is accompanied with a two-semester, six credit Immigration Clinic.
The Coral Gables law school also offers courses in Climate Change and Environmental Justice. The course in climate change covers topics including “the intersection of human rights and climate change.” The latter course focuses on “advocacy and transactional assistance to low- and moderate-income communities discriminated against by public and private actors in the fields of civil rights.”
