About the building: The new building will serve as space for the growing clinical programs offered by law school faculty and students as part of course work for graduation and to prepare students for law practice. This clinical service provides thousands of hours of free legal help annually to some of Hawai‘i’s most vulnerable people, including the elderly, youth, prisoners, veterans and families living at or near poverty levels. It will also provide much-needed space to develop students’ trial, practice and advocacy skills.
