Professor Matthew Fraidin is profiled in a new Washington Examiner article and says teaching at UDC-DCSL makes him proud to live in Washington, D.C.:
"I teach at our public
law school, and it is a special gem -- something the city has really
done right. At UDC's David A. Clarke School of Law, I'm surrounded by
colleagues and students who are indefatigable lawyers, activists, and
social change agents. They are narrowing the wealth gap and trying to
ensure that every family has an affordable home. They're making sure
that every D.C. child is offered a free, appropriate education instead
of juvenile incarceration. They help families stay strong together,
instead of being broken up by unnecessary foster care placements or
deportation. They help families affected by HIV/AIDS gain access to the
testing, treatment and services they need. Some students work at the
D.C. Council, and bring their sensibilities and talents to bear there.
It's all about building social capital, and these folks won't quit until
we get there."
Professor Fraidin is an associate professor at the UDC David A.
Clarke School of Law and a visiting professor at Georgetown University
Law Center. He also co-directs the HIV/AIDS Legal Clinic. Click here to read his full bio.
