Please join us for the 21st Annual Herbert Rubin and Justice Rose Luttan Rubin International Law Symposium at NYU School of Law organized by the NYU Journal of International Law and Politics. This year the symposium will be held on November 19th, 2015 and is entitled Constitution and Custom: Women’s Rights and Women’s Access to Justice in Pluralistic Legal Societies. The symposium will bring together human rights activists, constitutional scholars, and legal anthropologists from Nigeria, Mexico, and India to look at three case studies where constitutional law and indigenous, customary, or religious law collide in both constitutional structures and women’s everyday lives. The day will conclude with a keynote address by Vrinda Grover LLM ’06, a human rights lawyer and activist based in New Delhi, India. Ms. Grover was included in the TIME 100: Most Influential People in the World in 2013.
