The Human Rights Scholars program offers currently enrolled NYU Law students the opportunity to be a part of the Center community through close interaction with CHRGJ faculty and staff. Human Rights Scholars contribute to the Center’s activities as research assistants and can undertake independent writing projects under the guidance of CHRGJ faculty and staff.
Human Rights Scholars work with CHRGJ faculty and staff to further the Center’s research agenda and to support the design and implementation of the Center’s projects, conferences, workshops, and other programs. Each Human Rights Scholar will be assigned a primary supervisor from among CHRGJ faculty or senior staff. Research for the Center is compensated or undertaken for RA academic credit. Work is assigned on an as-needed basis. Workloads vary by supervisor, but scholars should be prepared to contribute a minimum of 60 hours per semester of RA assistance.
