Executive Director: Joshua Dubin

The Perlmutter Center for Legal Justice is a multifaceted center established through a generous donation from the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Foundation. The Perlmutters’ philanthropy is focused on one clear and powerful goal: helping others.

The Perlmutter Center for Legal Justice has two components. The first is a student field clinic called The Perlmutter Freedom Clinic at Cardozo Law, which focuses on cases where the conviction was based on the misuse of scientific evidence and works to obtain clemency for individuals unjustly incarcerated. The second component, The Perlmutter Forensic Science Education Program, will feature an ambitious legal education program in scientific evidence designed for practicing attorneys. The Perlmutter Center for Legal Justice builds on the decades-long success of Cardozo’s Forensic Science College.
