CUNY: International Women's Human Rights

CUNY Law students engage in cutting-edge human rights work under close clinical supervision, providing students broad experience in human rights practice. With a focus on combating gender discrimination and sexual violence, advancing reproductive and sexual rights, economic and social rights, and promoting women’s participation and empowerment, students develop a sound understanding of international human rights and sharpen lawyering skills necessary for effective law reform-oriented advocacy work applicable in both U.S. and international contexts. By addressing problems through the lens of human rights, students use international human rights law and institutions to challenge and expand rights protections domestically and internationally.
