Several of NYU Law’s centers and institutes touch on the issues surrounding immigration:
The Center for Human Rights & Global Justice (CHRGJ) has built a reputation for its academic and clinical work in human rights subjects—including counter-terrorism; corporate abuses; caste discrimination; gender-based violence; economic, social, and cultural rights; and extrajudicial executions.
The Public Interest Law Center (PILC) is a national model for the promotion of public service. PILC not only coordinates and promotes the Law School’s public interest and government service activities but also counsels students individually on their careers.
The Migration Policy Institute is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank in Washington, DC, dedicated to the analysis of the movement of people worldwide.
The Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights is a research center that promotes cutting-edge scholarship, advocacy, and education on human rights issues in the US and abroad. The institute acts as the coordinating hub for existing human rights work at NYU, including the Center for Human Rights & Global Justice and the US-Asia Law Institute.
