Samuelson-Glushko Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC)

The CIPPIC Summer Program offers outstanding law students an unequalled opportunity to work on cutting edge research and advocacy issues related to law and technology. CIPPIC advocacy typically involves submission of briefs to government and other policy-makers, intervention in precedent-setting cases before judicial and quasi-judicial tribunals, provision of public legal education resources, publication of reports, participation in multi-stakeholder policy-making forums, provision of expert testimony before parliamentary committees, and advising under-represented organizations and individuals on relevant public interest issues.
