The Insurance Law Center and the Center for Energy & Environmental Law enrich the intellectual life of the UConn School of Law by bringing scholars and industry experts together in the fields of insurance, risk management, energy and environmental law. In addition, the law school hosts the Connecticut Community Law Center, which offers low-cost legal assistance to low- and moderate-income clients. The law school also collaborates closely with the Center for Children's Advocacy.
Insurance Law Center
The Insurance Law Center - located in Hartford, America's historic "insurance capital" - is the preeminent academic center for insurance and financial services law. Our LLM Program in Insurance Law is the oldest in the country and world-renowned.
Center for Energy and Environmental Law
In 2010, UConn School of Law created the Center for Energy and Environmental Law (CEEL) as part of a program for combined legal education, policy, and scholarship. CEEL offers the ability for students to focus their studies in these exciting areas by bringing together experts from many disciplines to tackle the complex and exhilarating challenges relating to the world’s environmental and energy futures.
Center on Community Safety, Policing and Inequality
Law schools have a crucial role to play in the nationwide transformation of policing. The premise of our criminal justice system has long been that crime prevention, whatever its cost, is the overriding priority. The mission of the Center on Community Safety, Policing and Inequality is to question that assumption—and to provide advocates, officials, and community members with the tools necessary to effect meaningful change.
Connecticut Community Law Center
The Connecticut Community Law Center, an initiative of UConn School of Law and the Hartford County Bar Association, provides support to new attorneys entering solo practice who offer legal help at reasonable rates to people who have traditionally been underserved by the justice system. Clients are people with low and moderate incomes who don’t qualify for legal aid but can’t afford standard legal fees.
