About the skills-building series

In recent years, NYU law students focused on public interest law and human rights have expressed a desire for more opportunities to develop practical skills that may improve their marketability in their fields of interest following graduation. In response, the Public Interest Law Center (PILC), the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) and the Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights have decided to jointly organize a series of inter-disciplinary skill-building sessions throughout the 2015-2016 academic year. There will be two interactive evening sessions per semester, beginning in the fall semester. These sessions are targeted at NYU law students interested in pursuing public interest careers and non-traditional lawyering jobs.

About this session: Statistical Literacy

This workshop will build on the basic statistics course which 1L’s take in the fall semester, and will apply the core concept of statistics to the field of public interest and human rights. The workshop will examine the intersection of data and law, when and why numbers matter to law (including when, why and how public interest lawyers use data), basic skills for engaging in critical analysis of data and considerations regarding the use of data in legal research, advocacy, and scholarship.
