The SAGE website is up and running!

SAGE serves survivors of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and other forms of gender-based exploitation.  The project engages these issues in a variety of legal frameworks, including family law, criminal law, civil law, and legal education.  SAGE aims to provide legal training and hands-on experience to students interested in direct service work with survivors of trauma, and strives to prepare students for the social and psychological needs of a client that arise while engaging the client’s legal case.
