NUSL Social Justice Program Final Presentation (2015)

Katie Beck and Emily Yozell were present as representatives of the Rich Coast Project at the final presentation of the 2014-2015 Social Justice Program group that worked the entire academic year to develop a project entitled "Property in Paradise: Securing Land Rights in Costa Rica's Talamanca Region"

The Legal Skills in Social Context (LSSC) Social Justice Program is a partnership between community organizations or agencies and the School of Law to address unmet social justice needs. Each organization selected to join the program receives 2,000 hours of free work by students organized into “law offices.”

The Rich Coast Project has partnered with Northeastern's LSSC Social Justice Program for the past two years, with law students contributing significant research and analysis toward the organization's objectives of documenting local land conflicts within a framework of international law and human rights.
