The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law evolved from two predecessor schools: the Antioch School of Law and the District of Columbia School of Law. Antioch School of Law was created in 1972 by Edgar S. and Jean Camper Cahn who championed the rights of low-income people and minorities. The school was also committed to training public interest lawyers and pioneered a comprehensive clinical legal education model, adopted now, in small part, in nearly every law school in the country.
UDC Law is the only public law school in the Nation's Capitol and one of only six Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Law Schools in the nation.
