Harvard Law School’s WilmerHale Legal Services Center—one of the leading providers of legal aid in Greater Boston and surrounding communities—has announced that Daniel Nagin, Clinical Professor of Law, will be its Faculty Director.
Nagin succeeds Clinical Professor of Law Robert Greenwald, who has served as the director of LSC since 2009, and will devote his time fully to his health policy work as Faculty Director of the law school’s Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, which will house both the law school’s health and food law and policy clinics.
“The Legal Services Center tackles essential needs in the Greater Boston community while offering students opportunities to serve to learn from talented and dedicated staff,” said Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School. “Robert Greenwald’s inspired leadership has strengthened and deepened the Center’s outstanding community collaborations. He has led staff and students in their work on behalf of survivors of domestic abuse, people facing eviction and predatory lending, and individuals seeking disability benefits and health care. Robert has at the same time built our nationally recognized center and clinic on health law and policy innovation to which he will now devote his full-time leadership.
“We are so lucky that his successor is Dan Nagin, an award-winning advocate, inspired teacher, and leader in clinical legal education,” Minow added. “Dan has long worked to expand access to quality legal services for persons who are homeless, poor, or disabled and he recently created the Veterans Law and Disability Benefits Clinic at the Center. It is a privilege to watch how the vision and tireless efforts of these lawyers advance justice and inspire the next generation of lawyers.”
