N.J. law school clinics subject to Open Meetings law
A New Jersey court has apparently ruled that law clinics at the state’s two government-owned law schools (Rutgers-Camden and Rutgers-Newark) are subject to the state Open Public Records Act. Material protected by the attorney-client privilege can be withheld, but other records will have to be produced.
The court rejected arguments by the American Association of University Professors, the Clinical Legal Education Association, and the Society of American Law Teachers, who argued that compliance with the law would have a negative impact on the services they provide.
