Udi Ofer’s Princeton University Clinic Provides Opportunities for Field Work

Udi Ofer (’01), Founding Director of the Policy Advocacy Clinic at Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), was quoted in The Daily Princetonian discussing his goals for the Policy Advocacy Clinic, as students commemorated its inaugural year praising practical partnerships with policymakers (“Positive Reviews for SPIA Flirtation with Hands-on Clinical Work,” Apr. 27). “The most immediate goal of the Princeton Policy Advocacy Clinic is to immerse students in a real-world policy making experience,” ultimately, “to bring my experience working for 20 years on public policy issues related to civil rights and civil liberties into the classroom and prepare the next generation of leaders.” Recommending the program for anyone who “wants to make the world a better place,” Udi noted, “Policymaking is really hard. Being an advocate is really hard. [...] In the Princeton Policy Advocacy Clinic, I hope to help inspire [the] next generation of movement leaders and policy leaders who will make our world a better place for all.”
