Christy Crouse
Summer Legal Intern

Christy Crouse is a first-year law student at the University of Chicago Law School where she is President of the Immigration Law Society and Vice President of the Human Rights Law Society. She is a Research Assistant for a professor of international law and enjoys studying comparative legal institutions.

Prior to law school, Christy received a Fulbright grant to teach in Colombia and also spent time as a Critical Language Scholar in China. She graduated summa cum laude from Truman State University with bachelor’s degrees in political science and Spanish with a focus in East Asian Studies.

At CHRGJ, Christy will focus on two legal empowerment projects in the immigration context. She will work closely with New Sanctuary Coalition, a grassroots organization providing legal support to community members facing deportation and detention, to help conduct a participatory self-evaluation of their legal empowerment work. She will also continue CHRGJ’s collaboration with UNHCR to document legal empowerment strategies in cities around the country.
