Institute for Public Representation
IPR is a public interest law firm and law school clinic founded by Georgetown University Law Center in 1971. IPR serves as counsel for groups and individuals who are unable to obtain effective legal representation on issues of broad public importance. IPR’s work is currently focused in three areas: civil rights/general public interest law, environmental law, and communications law and policy. IPR provides third-year and occasionally second-year law students an opportunity to develop a wide range of lawyering skills by working on real cases under the supervision of faculty members and fellows (also referred to as staff attorneys).
