Center for Human Rights and Global Justice

About CHRGJ

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice was established in 2002 to bring together and expand the rich array of teaching, research, clinical, internship, and publishing activities undertaken within New York University School of Law on issues of international human rights law.

Over fifteen years later, CHRGJ has become the hub of human rights study at NYU Law, the top-ranked program for international law in the country and one of the premier law schools in the world. The Center’s location in New York – home of the United Nations and of many human rights NGOs – places the Center at a unique physical and conceptual intersection of human rights scholarship and practice.

CHRGJ is committed to critical introspection in its research and advocacy. It aims to generate substantive and cutting-edge contributions to human rights research and legal scholarship on the part of faculty, staff, students, fellows and visitors; actively engage in public affairs; and make original and constructive contributions to ongoing public debates relating to human rights.

CHRGJ carries out this mandate with a talented team of scholars and advocates, working under the interdisciplinary direction of four faculty directors renowned in their fields. The Center houses a robust fellowship program and hosts in-house scholarship by established academics and NYU Law students, and places students in summer and post-graduate internships with human rights and international law organizations.
