Featuring Saif Ansari presenting a paper on international criminal law and Carla De Ycaza  presenting a paper on post-conflict transitional justice in Africa.

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) invites 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.

The series of workshops, which will include several brown bag lunches throughout this 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. 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.

Sign up to attend the other workshops:

Students who are interested in submitting their papers should sign up for a specific workshop date here. In the space provided for your name, please also identify your paper topic in parenthesis, for example, “Nikki Reisch (corporate accountability in int’l law).” Each session will be limited to two papers. Students are expected to send a draft of their papers to 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.

Questions may be directed to Stacy Cammarano,, or Nikki Reisch,
