Liman at 20: Public Interest(s): Launching the Arthur Liman Center for Public Interest Law

After two decades of promoting equal access to justice through fellowships, research, seminars, and programs, the Arthur Liman Public Interest Program has been re-established as the Arthur Liman Center for Public Interest Law. The launch of the Center on April 6, 2017, coincides with the 20th Anniversary Liman Colloquium at Yale Law School, a private gathering for the Law School community. The Colloquium will include some 70 of the 123 current and former YLS Liman Fellows, joining YLS students, deans, faculty, and the Liman family and friends.

“The lifelong commitment of Arthur Liman to the underserved and his vision of a world where justice is available to all inspired the creation of the Arthur Liman Public Interest Program,” said Dean Robert C. Post ’77. “After 20 years, Arthur’s vision is being furthered with a new Center on solid footing to expand its efforts to support faculty and students responding to inequalities in access to justice.”
