Transitional Justice and Human Rights Writers Workshop

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) launched its Transitional Justice and Human Rights Writers Workshop in 2015. The workshop, which is held during several brown bag lunches throughout each semester, is designed to provide NYU law students with an informal opportunity to receive constructive feedback from their peers and from CHRGJ staff about draft papers related to transitional justice, human rights, and other international law topics. The workshop is meant to be a space to discuss existing works-in-progress, not a call for students to create new projects. There is no need to attend all the sessions, although regular participation is welcome.

At the beginning of each semester, CHRGJ will issue an announcement on with information on how to sign up to present a paper at that semester’s sessions. Each session will be limited to two papers. Students are expected to send a draft of their papers to Anam Salem one week before the workshop, for distribution to registered attendees. In addition, students who submit a paper will be expected to attend one of the other sessions to give feedback.

CHRGJ invites students to attend these workshops, hear about their peers’ scholarly pursuits, provide writing and research suggestions, and engage in discussions on the issues of international law that the papers present. CHRGJ will send out more information on how to RSVP once writers have been assigned for each date. Please sign up for our mailing list at to ensure that you receive the reminder emails.
