Apr 1, 2016
12:30pm - 2:00pm    |    Wilf 5th Floor Conference Room, 139 MacDougal Street, New York, NY

Light snacks will be served, please feel free to bring your own “brown bag” lunch. Attendance is limited. Papers will be distributed to registered attendees only, via email. Register here.

The following papers will be presented:

Lara Sofia Romera “Payday Lending Regulations Ignore Women of Color: How an international human rights framework could help”

Bryan Furst presenting his paper, “The Struggle to Obtain Accurate Data on the Police Use of Deadly Force: Using Technology to Bypass Government Failures”.  

We invite students and scholars to attend the Transitional Justice and Human Rights Writers Workshop to discuss NYU law students’ draft papers related to transitional justice, human rights, and other international law topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide writing and research suggestions, and engage in discussions on the issues of international law that the papers present.

This workshop is the final one for the Spring 2016 semester. The series of workshops will resume in the Fall of 2016 and will include several brown bag lunches throughout the semester. Workshops are designed to provide NYU law students with an informal opportunity to receive constructive feedback from their peers and from CHRGJ staff about draft papers. 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.

Questions may be directed to Anam Salem, anam.salem@nyu.edu, or Tine Destrooper, tine.destrooper@nyu.edu.
