Researching Public Law and Public Policy in the Public Interest

CLiME News

CLiME is proud to to announce the launch of our new blog endinequality which will serve as a digital portal for public scholarship on structural inequality, and innovative approaches to tackling inequality, in an effort for us all end-in-equality.
CLiME is now accepting applications for our Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellowship, open to all students at Rutgers School of Law-Newark and the Graduate School-Newark, who seek to publish an interdisciplinary research paper on issues related to equity and opportunity in the Greater Rutgers region of Northern New Jersey.
Our 2015-2016 Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellows have spent the Spring semester completing coursework with Prof. Troutt and advancing their qualitative research projects that span an array of issues in place-based inequality and opportunity. Fellows also participated in a Writing Public Scholarship workshop to develop refined strategies for making research and scholarship accessible to all.
Beginning in the fall of 2015, CLiME’s Trauma, Schools and Poverty Project (TSP) is a multi-year effort to understand the relationships between structural inequality and the pervasive experience of complex psychological stress and trauma. Working to understand these connections between environment and well-being for disparate populations in the Greater Newark region by focusing on the immediate psychological and educational needs of children in schools, we are collaborating with local researchers from psychology and social work who are conducting quantitative and qualitative study of trauma symptomatology.
On April 15, 2016, CLiME proudly co-hosted the Trauma-Informed Care Roundtable along the New Jersey State Attorney General's Office. Trauma practitioners from throughout the state convened to discuss new working definitions of trauma, with panels on Trauma in Adults and Children, Care Practices in Action, and the Capacity to Provide Trauma-Informed Care.

CLiME is proud to host the Third Annual Local Government Law Conference, a works-in-progress scholarship conference for visiting law professors. The conference will take place November 6-7, 2015 at the Rutgers School of Law- Newark. This year we are particularly interested in showcasing papers that interrogate the meaning and utility of an equity principle in local governance. Drafts are due October 30, 2015 and will be available on the CLiME website.
The Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellowship at Rutgers University- Newark is a joint partnership of the Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity (CliME) at the Rutgers Law School and the Graduate School- Newark. The Fellowship aims to promote interdisciplinary study and serious public scholarship about the structure of place-based inequality. This broad subject includes institutional analyses (e.g., education, housing, public health, infrastructure, social services) of how racial and economic inequality is reproduced to sustain geographies of relative opportunity across our region and beyond. It is open to all students at Rutgers School of Law-Newark or in the Graduate School-Newark.
Our 2015 Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellowship Conference will be held on Rutgers University-Newark's downtown campus.
The 2015 Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellowship Conference will take place on Thursday, Spetember 24th, 2015 from 4-6:30pm in Esterly Lounge, located on the second floor of Engelhard Hall, 190 University Avenue in downtown Newark, NJ.
As we complete our second full year of operations at the Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity (CLiME), we are busy expanding the discourse on structural—often place-based—inequality in the Greater Rutgers University Newark region and across metropolitan America. Thanks to the support of Chancellor Nancy Cantor and Provost Todd Clear and a growing partnership with the Graduate School under Dean Kyle Farmbry’s stewardship, CLiME has been able to embark on a broad array of exciting (and challenging) new activities that demonstrate our mission to connect law with other disciplines in order to produce research and policy perspectives on some of the most confounding equity issues of our time.
