Co-founded by two Zoom School of Law students in 2019, the Law Students 4 Radical Real Estate (LS4RRE AKA "LASER") provides hands-on opportunities for law students from across the nation to support Sustainable Economy Law Center’s clients. To date, students have sought property tax exemptions for a non-profit led by formerly unhoused community members, drafted explanations of co-op agreements, and researched zoning laws that affect tribal communities. 

LASER is organized by law student Taliah Mirmalek, Director, 2021 who is now seeking a co-director.
