The clinic provides pro bono legal assistance in environmental matters. They represented interests opposed to the development of an outlet mall.

The ruling "encompasses client-related documents or clinical case files, as well as requests for information about the development and management of litigation." The ruling not not address disclosure of litigation funding from public sources. (Mike Frisch)
