Human Rights Scholar

Yoojin Lee is a first-year JD candidate at NYU working as a Human Rights Scholar on the Human Rights Resilience Project with Professor Margaret Satterthwaite and Consulting Fellow Ria Singh Sawhney.

Yoojin received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from NYU Abu Dhabi. Her undergraduate study and her thesis, Relations between Attachment Security and Life Story Themes, examined how humans develop resilience through their interactions with various factors in their environment, ranging from their primary caregivers to broader society. Her academic interest and passion for human rights stem from the insights she obtained from her background in psychology. In the future, she aims to research and foster human resilience against dehumanizing legal systems and practices.
