“The Arthur Garfield Hays Civil Liberties Program at New York University Law School is the most effective and important center in the country for the training of law students for public service on behalf of individual rights.”
- Hon. William J. Brennan, Jr., United States Supreme Court
Fellows work in special internships, usually two during the academic year, for civil liberties and other human rights organizations on litigation, legislation, and other legal assignments. Fellows may also work on research or special projects with one of the Program's Faculty Directors. The Fellows and Directors meet each month to discuss the Fellows’ work and also meet regularly with former Hays Fellows or other guests to discuss current civil liberties problems.
