Abstract:     
This article is an edited transcript of an interview with Fred Rooney, currently the Director of the International Justice Center for Post-Graduate Development at Touro Law Center. As the inaugural director of the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law’s Community Legal Resource Network (CLRN), Mr. Rooney pioneered the first law-school based legal incubator. In this interview he discusses the creation of the CLRN, the evolution and growth of legal incubators, and his experience launching the Community Legal Services Center (Centro Comunitario de Servicios Legales or CECSEL) at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD) in the Dominican Republic. Included in the text are comments from the Attorney General of the Dominican Republic, Francisco Domínguez Brito, an avid supporter of the program, as well as comments from three of the lawyers at CECSEL: Isabel Cabrera, Luis Calcaño, and Katherine Quezada.
